Re: Congo puffer treatment

That site doesnt work in the NL. Tells me to buy a domain for 1900 dollar or something. But its gonna be the Tetraodon Cochinchinensis. Theres only like 3 or 4 FW available here :( maybe i should step over to brackish.

Re: Congo puffer treatment

Yea that machine wasnt an option since the tank is in the living room nowhere near a connection for it. Instead i still got the filter. The Eheim Experience 350 with added Dennerle AmmoniumStop Supra. And Dennerle nitrate stop. Update: pretty pissed off..it can take weeks before they have the puffer...

Re: Congo puffer treatment

Well I just tested my tap water and its a really really light green/yellowish color. Same as with the tank. I just tested that too and thats a really really light green/yellowish color too. Thats the NH4. The NO2 now is a almost transparant. Both meaning NH4: <0,05 and NO2: <0,01. I dont think I can...

Re: Congo puffer treatment

Re: Congo puffer treatment

Yea the vitamins I read about. Ill have a look at that. Any tip on what brand of it is good for a puffer or just any fish vitamin product? If he is gonna ignore the snails ill get rid of the pond snails and breed shrimps in it instead. About the meds I have to agree. I dont like giving anything meds...

Re: Congo puffer treatment

Ah that would make treating it alot easier. Im based in the NL so ill have to ask the supplier what brand and name of meds they use here. But i guess the ingredients would be the same as the UK/USA meds. I am planning on feeding him a lot of different things: - Shrimps: Depending on the size of the ...

Congo puffer treatment

I mean its gonna be alone in the 47 gallon tank anyway. So no other fish would be involved or affected. Would i still ...

Re: Tetraodon Miurus + Cory's

Theres no deco in it. Its sand with Lucense, Echinodorus and Valisneria.I took out the deco in it like spiderwood and a cave already. Thats why i didnt want to take all the plants out cause they have been rooting for months to get sturdy in the sand. But ill try it again.
