Found it on Google images at 1st before I finally joined it but It was in MFK website when you (Pufferpunk) was sending the link when people needing help in the MFK puffer forum, plus helped me out by referring it. I always found that sites that focus on one species of fishes are mostly the best ones. I have been an active member in 2 other forums for another species of fishes also.

Well we are PP.

When you type in Puffer or anything about it on a google search engine, TPF is always on the first Page. :D

Weirdly enough, it was from a video on Youtube.com+a blog about fish. The blog had posted a cute video of a puffer, and I saw a link to here!

Today I was doing some searching about to find info on the puffer I just had shipped on the weekend from my trip to Calgary. Typed in puffer forum as key words in the search bar and your forum came up.

After spending some time here, went to MFK my usual fish forum haunt and found that a person there has the same name as someone here so figured it had to be the same person. This would be puffer punk :0)

Hello I'm Gennaro from Italy. Some days ago, i was reading about the Congo Puffer and MBU on italian site http://www.vergari.info/pesci_tetraodontidae
while in the middle of the page i read about this site. I try to translate what they say about this forum:"this is one of the best and most "serious" forum about puffers, freshwater, brackish and seawater."

Bye :D

While researching to buy my first Fahaka puffer, this was the first result in Google. I'm sure I've stumbled upon it several times in the past while learning about a particular puffer, but the extensive information available on Fahakas is what helped me make up my mind to care for one, and to join the forum. :)

Can you help me?

I had gotten my Fahaka from a friend and didn't know much and the puffer got sick/stressed. So I googled the symptoms and a thread from like 2005 came up so I looked at it and made an account :D

I was researching about DP/F8/GSP care. Thanks Google! I also found some of pufferpunks old thread, which also led me to this forum.

I'm also trying to leave trails for folks on my other forum to find TPF.
Kind regards,

Tropicalfishkeeping they have a puffer section that is very neglected. Many of the cases get referred back to here in one way or another.
