Big puffers need big space
It's amazing how easy maintenance is. If done regularly and thoroughly

Beautiful tank, and what a gorgeous puffer! It's so fun to go through the whole thread and watch him grow.

Very nice! Ya know your puffer reminds me of the stereotypical nerd with the big googly eyes and buck teeth. Does he watch a lot of Sci-Fi? lol

Naah thats just what a healthy adult fahaka looks like! He get some food every 2-3 days. Altho he is starting to become an expert at sneaking up against the little danios and eat them. I always have a school of around 12 of them but need to refill to that number every 2 months ;)

I would still cut down a little on feeding, overweight puffers are not healthy. The belly should only round slightly after feeding, not all the time. Shes certainly a beauty tho
