Re: Getting a Puffer for the first time - Advice Needed

When I do, I go to Red-Fish Blue-Fish. I don't know if they are still open as they weren't doing so well last summer (my last visit).

Re: Can Puffer fish comm with Arowana & Stingrays

All three of those should be in species only tanks. Your rays well breed better. The arows will not have droop eye in their old age, and the puffer will not kill its tank mates. But dang if I could house that combo. Rays, arows and a cross river, that is a dream come true. "over here is my ray ...

Re: Puffer Shelter - Hobby?

We're on the same page here. Just reading it differently. I was never mentioned "thief". I am all for what you are doing. In a world where verbal tones can't be measured, don't get offended by someone taking something the wrong way. It happens more than you think. When that happens we clar...

Re: Why are we getting spammed?

These are real people. The bots are blocked. It is a copy and paste job. I think these guys and gals are doing a top notch job of keeping the bots out.

That I did. Please forgive me as with this many members and forums, I can't always associate each individual with each thread post. We'll chalk it up to information overload. I reply to the thread "as is". Cross thread information is absolutely lost on me. Lets suppose the reference were w...

Re: Puffer Shelter - Hobby?

All true and valid replies. Read the quote again. It mentions nothing about sick fish, and ALL LFS' especially chains house their fish improperly in the first place. They are just temporary housing until someone buys them and gives them a proper home. I'm not saying you can't start negotiations, but...

Re: Puffer Shelter - Hobby?

I have been working on this first with my dogface then with my recently aquired S&S. One thing I learned is at petco for instance. You go in throw a fit, tell them they are doing it wrong. Then buy it for half price therefore they are not making a profit. Then save the fish. I got my 5 inch dog...

Re: Getting a Puffer for the first time - Advice Needed

here we have Maple, corn and blended. Maple is the most expensive, then comes blended and corn is the cheapest. Corn syrup is nice and an excellent alternative. It just doesn't have that "wow" factor that 100% maple has. It is more akin to honey that is a little on the watery side.

Re: Flea spraying your house with fish tanks

=) What we did was get a tinfoil plate, fill it with some water and a few drops of dish soap (to change the surface tension) and put a spot light on it. In our case, it was a reading light. The fleas go to the heat and light source and jump into the water. The lamp head has to be close to the tray f...
