Re: Some pictures of T Erythroataenia

yup, they are great for QT tanks and if you need to see if a fish is eating properly.
they also make cleaning the tank very easy.

RIP BOO :(

Hi guys, long time no post, the puffer forum is where I started off with Boo so I'll post this here before anywhere else. :) Well, today is one of the saddest of my adult life :( Boo has been staying at work in a heated pond for the last month or so. Last night the heater tripped out, that coupled w...

Re: is barbatus now cambodgiensis?

Ok thanks for the prompt reply Corvus :) Perhaps you can help clear up the differences between Leiurus and Cambodgiensis then? Also, why can I not find any info on Leiurus in the PufferPedia? Does no one own a specimen or is it not imported? I've studied many lists coming out of Thailand all claimin...

is barbatus now cambodgiensis?

I know I haven't been around for a while and this may've slipped past me but has this fish been reclassified?

Thanks in advance

I have one of these at work and it's very active. Infact I saw another one when i was in Enfield the other day. Unfortunatly they're only expensive if the shop knows what they are. They are coming in off a Thailand shipper very, very cheap so certain shops will bump up the price on them. I'm sure yo...

Nitrate is generally high in the UK anyway. Only way around it is RO water. I have used tetra easy balance to reduce it. But don't do as they suggest and never water change, just add it weekly when you water change. Worked for me. There are a few wholesalers in the uk offering f8's at the moment. I ...
