Re: why are my mollies acting like morons?

I think you would know best how to redo the tank to prevent that, since it's in your possession.

Re: my puffer problems

Taking 4 GSP from a 45 gallon, and adding them to a 29 gallon already stocked with 1, isn't exactly a rescue. If you truly want what is best for them, either rehome them, or house them more appropriately.

Re: my puffer problems

They do look stressed in the photos from what I can tell by the coloration, and from your description as well. Change will cause stress, but as bertie 83 says, they each need 30 gallons min, so they probably aren't very comfortable all scooched in one tank. There may be other reasons of course, but ...

Re: WTB Mbu Puffer

Welcome, and it's nice to see someone making responsible decisions regarding the Mbu. I'm sorry your other one jumped. We don't currently have any members wishing to rehome an Mbu in the US, have you checked local ads or rescue groups?
