Re: Brown Algae

If I have my tank light on a lot I get brown algae but if they're not on a lot then the brown stuff goes away.

Re: Is my F8 Puffer pyscho?

my F8 completely stopped pacing when I added a background. The first 2 days he was looking at the background a lot, but he doesn't do ups and downs since adding it.

"giant monster puffers" - youtube find

Found this and wanted to share it, wondering what kind of puffs you guys think these are. I can't believe someone was able to just pick the puffers up and hold them like that, the puffs seemed so nice! None of them were freaking out being in such a small container and having a hand in there touching...

Re: 2 Kinds of F8 ??? Different patterns

could be your puffer, I just searched google and flickr and grabbed some pics.

Thanks for clarifying about the spots by the tail, still curious though, as to me this seems like a pretty striking difference.....

2 Kinds of F8 ??? Different patterns

I've noticed there's F8s that look like this (lines all over, not many pronounced blobs/spots) http://blog.captive-aquatics.com/.a/6a010535f11c3d970c011570554a52970b-320wi http://t1.gstatic.com/images?q=tbn:ANd9GcSAAo_Dv919TDUnn0Pu_Z0O-bF3FrOqn8dHmNaehziykvrqHxY&t=1&usg=__e-bWOeDwukv4Pk7BIF8wo3FEuN...

Re: Puffer Fish Waking Up

Here is Chomper waking up, I found this video I already had from about a month ago so I just posted it online.

He is sleeping in his old bed by the mirror, then I come in and he gets right up :)

Puffer Fish Waking Up

I was thinking... I'm sure in the next day or two I'd be able to sneak a video of my puffer fish waking up. This would show where he sleeps, what he looks like when he sleeps, and also what he's like when he's waking up. I was thinking we could all post vids of our puffer fish waking up into this th...

Do your puffs get jealous of eachother?

So my bigger GSP Chomper, I always play with him, play tag and peekaboo and stuff. And then the smaller GSP Little One, I never play with him. If I give Little One my sole attention, Chomper will attack him like "Hey, she only plays with ME dont get in my way!!!" Like Chomper is dominant over.... me...

Re: Do all puffers do this?

my gsp has done the dance (i call it him wagging his tail like a puppy lol) and he also spits on occasion.

the new f8 seems too small to dance, but yes he spits, or blows or whatever it is they're doing.
