Matt's Spotted Congo puffers

So today I picked up my 2 Tetraodon Schoutedeni.

The shop believed these to be a male and female, but that off course remains to be seen.

Some quick pictures in the cup I used to transfer them after acclimatising:

Puffer 2:

(the cup is around 10cm or 3.9" for reference.)


The shop already had them separated for me so they could get used to each other so I’ve decided to forgo the planned divider as long as they play nice.

I took the pictures right after adding them to the tank, I’ll try my best to take some decent pictures soon. Both already ate a little bit of frozen krill and one crushed a snail or 2, so I’m hopeful they’ll won’t be as picky as I feared.

If you hadn’t guessed by the amount of pictures,(sorry about that) I’m absolutely in love with these little guys. :redface: :D

I’ve made 2 clips, one on day 2 in the quarantine tank and one in the aquarium. I feel like they have put on some weight
