Re: Baby puffer won’t eat

aren't you concerned about your nitrite level? what's your ammonia level? what kind of test kit are you using? what kind of dewormer and how are you dosing it? the antibiotic may do more harm than good in the long run if there is no infection that it is formulated for. krill is like "crack" for puff...

Re: Feeding DP bloodworms after the worms died?

what kind of worms do you have?

what size tank?
what other occupants?
