Re: another flying fahaka!!!

same things happened when my GSP bit my boyfriend, it flew across the air as my boyfriend flailed not realizing the fish was still attached to his finger. Poor Chomper sure did puff and freak out.

Thats cool that it swam around like nothing happened.

Re: Is 29g big enough for a F8?




Got some new plants and rocks, this F8 absolutely LOVES plants. He swims around in the plants all day, it's awesome. It's like, instead of swimming on the glass doing ups and downs, he swims in and out of the plants :)

Re: Anyone else hate tank cleaning day?

Each time I clean the tank the puffers seem to not mind as much. At first they would hold these grudges against me for upto 3 days. Now they don't hold grudges anymore. 'They' being my GSPs. My F8 follows my hands around when I am cleaning, it's cute. And when I move the plants and rocks around, he ...

Strange subject, pardon, Big Puffer Bum ?

I appologize for the subject being discussed, but I am curious. Today my GSP took the biggest poop ever and his bum was stuck open all day. I was just wondering if anyone else has seen the same thing happen? It just seemed a little odd to me, and caught me off guard. I feed mostly bloodworms and my...

Re: My F8 doesn't enjoy hiding spots ?

Ah, so it needs spots to hunt, not spots to hide?

My gsp likes to go into cozy spots and have naps. The F8 doesn't go near the cozier spots.

Re: eat fish???

I don't like seafood.

I think it would be funny if I liked raw shrimp, then I could share a meal with my puffer - I mean how cool would that be ??

My F8 doesn't enjoy hiding spots ?

Hello, got a new F8 a little over a week ago. It is very active and friendly and all, but it doesn't go in any hiding places. I don't have enough hiding places so far, and will be picking up more decor on Thursday. The thing is, he doesn't go in any nooks or crannies, he just stays in the open space...

Re: F8 vs. GSP

I had GSPs for 3 years, and a F8 for a week. I enjoy my GSPs more than the F8, but I'm sure I just need to give the F8 some time. My GSPs just seem to have more personality and be more lively. The F8 is a little scared of me, the GSPs aren't. ONE time my GSP bit my boyfriend and it made him scream r...

Re: gsp confusion? help please(:

Chomper and Little One are both my GSPs. I got Little One about 1 year after Chomper. They were both only 1 inch long when I got them. I got Chomper 3 years ago, and Little One 2 years ago. Chomper is now 2.5 inches and Little One is 2 inches (including tail). So they are growing at about 1/2 an inc...
