Re: MY MBU DESPERATELY NEEDS HELP!!!

Mbupuff, you might be putting your fish through a lot of stress by taking no real action at all. If the antibiotics aren't working, and IF the mass is still GROWING, IMHO you should either have the mass removed, or euthanize the fish. The catch 22 is that if he's going to need the surgery, I wouldn'...

Large Porcupine Puffer gets Lucky

I don't know where this video was shot, but this big porky was really fortunate to have some nice folks help him back on his way after his encounter with a fish hook. I hope his back didn't get too sunburned. If you simply can't wait for payoff, jump right to the 1:55 point on this 2:31 video. QPfJu...

Re: ID

Here's a small porcupine puffer with good color.

They do tend to fade with age, though.

Re: POV camera: Puffers raid Long Island fisherman's crab tr

What kind of puffers are they? Was wondering the same thing... Is it fresh or saltwater? Long Beach Island is a dune barrier island along the New Jersey coastline in the Atlantic. The southern tip of the island actually feeds into Great Bay and a very large river. That means salt, brackish, and fre...

Re: Turquoise Head Jewels spawning in Fahaka central

Point taken, PP.

Better to be well fed and well kept, than just well fed.

I pity this portly fellow.

Turquoise Head Jewels spawning in Fahaka central

This is some interesting footage of a really beautiful aquarium that had a rather interesting mix of 2 Fahakas, as well as several species of Cichlids. According to Martin's posts, it all worked for a while, but he eventually separated everything out due to stress issues. Be sure to view some of his...

Re: Why De-clawing Live Crabs before feeding may be a good i

+1 to pp. Alot of ignorant fish keepers out there. Yes, Welch4, there certainly are. Sadly, many unique display fish never survive the steep, owner's learning curve. Even sadder, many fish tank owners simply don't care, and never will. They look at an impressive animal like this MBU, and to them it...

Why De-clawing Live Crabs before feeding may be a good idea

This Swimming crab obviously has been planned as a dinner guest for these three chunky stooges, but dang blast it, she's going down swinging ! At the 1:44 point of this 2:48 video, check out the extensive battle damage old crabby's razor sharp claws did to face of the first puffer who foolishly just...
