Google when I was panicking about an IP in my first puffer a couple years ago.

I had kind of discovered DP's while searching for a different kind of carnivorous fish, unique and small. I didn't know what they looked like really, or how it would be at the LFS. I just wanted something interesting for my 10gallon tank. They said they had a DP, I bought him, and took him home. He didn't look ANYTHING like the photos of DP's I found online. I was a member of Fishlore.com, and I think that is where I found a link to TPF. The gates to information opened, and I was enlightened.

My 10gallon was unfit, I need 150 gallons.
He was already bigger than a full grown DP.
Lord, what have I gotten myself into? ( :love: :censored: :love: )

:paranoid: And then I found a five dollar bill.

I goodled my way here and I never thought I would have the opportunity to join as I am quite busy these past few days. When I tried to browse the threads, however, my attention was ignited on the interesting topics and replies.

Googling images of "green spotted fish" and clicked a cute little guy that looks like my new adopty. So happy it led me to this site!

Now I can spend all my time learning what I should have known prior to accepting the orphan and his tank mates.

Thank you all.... this is a great site!

I was panicking about Koopa's perenially slighty gray belly, with the exception of when he is sleeping! This is definitely such a priceless resource.

Hours and hours of online GSP information searching on google, which pulled up the Puffer Library!
