Re: DP w/chin blister/abscess...idk?

sadly, this is often the end result of "rescue fish" (and cats, dogs, ferrets, sometimes even humans..................)
their health and long-term wellness are severely compromised by what they were subject to prior to getting a home
I hope your luck is better than this

Re: Congo Puffer (Tetraodon Miurus)

I know tank mates for it, because with the 2 I had before, the tank mates were a Discus, fire eel, dragon puffer, leaf fish, datnoid, common pleco, albino bichir, archer fish, and an silver arrowana. I just don't know why the previous have died, nothing was wrong with the parameters in my tank, but...

does he have sufficient small grained gravel or sand to burrow in?

Re: What diet should i supplement for my dwarf pufferfish

................nearly any raw seafood, frozen/defrosted, chopped
clams, mussels, oysters, crab meat, shrimp, squid, lobster, use your imagination! :)
soak the raw frozen/chopped food in vitamins before feeding
also, small live snails and blackworms are a favorite

Re: The Most Value For Money Vitamins?

Anyway I'm certainly interested and could do with the info. I can't be any help here since I haven't bought any vitamins sorry. ............oh, so...

Re: Does Krill Sink Or Float?

it will float, as it is lighter than water
if you were to re-hydrate it, it may sink
some puffers are bottom feeders, some are not
