I fell in love again for my Figure 8 puffer.

Greeting,

I had 2 f8 puffer for almost 8 years before one of them died this year... :rip:

So.. I decided to gift my current singleton F8, a wonderful home.

Now he's living in a 46G fake plant brackish tank with sump for better filtration; here we go...

That's all.

Feel free for any question.

Thank you. I'm really happy with current decor.. it feels my F8 too. :)

I took those pics using my cel fone, it's not a super smartphone... just a Samsung galaxy S3.

I doubt that I could get pictures like that with an SLR...
