Re: I need some advice please.

Thanks for your kind comment on my little cherub's tank.

I need some advice please.

I've had Dj and Skoot now since January 2009 and have not major issues until the pat couple of weeks where Dj keeps nipping Skoot. I was thinking about giving Dj free to a good home but I am worried that this may affect Skoot. Even although Dj goes for him most of the time I don't want Skoot becomin...

I have replied on kokos to your post: If some morning you get up and it looks like someone has salted the body, fins, and gills of your fish, you are looking at "Ich", sometimes called ick, or white spot disease. "Ich" is a protozoan parasite with the scientific name of Ichthyophthirius multifiliis....

Re: Red-Spot Puffer... advice please

I am no expert and someone with more experience will be able to better advise you How big is your tank, what are your water parameters and how often do you do water changes etc. It's good that your puffer is still eating.

Re: Concerned about my dwarf puffers' eating habits...

I've got 3 DP's in 5 gallon (I plan to move them into a 10 gallon in August :lol: ) and I've only had them since last Friday. I got 1 male and 2 female and are 1/2 - 3/4 of an inch long. I fed them 21 snails yesterday, but they only got to pick off a couple nibbles off of each snail. They look pret...
