You are getting sleepy... you only hear the sound of my voice... you must do water changes... water changes... water changes... water changes...

Hi. I am also new to this forum and I live in the uk. I have kept all kinds of different fish and now have my first puffer. I have a one inch baby Fahaka. He is in a 6 x 2 x 2 with 2 x 300 watt Oase heaters, 2 x FX4 filters and an air stone. Tank has sand subsrate with various Jarva Fern on blunt driftwoid and a large area of Amazon Swords. I feed Ramshorn snails, earthworms, cockle on half shell, bloodworm, shrimp and frzon chopped mussel. I do 40% partial water changes every three days which I have preheated, gassed off and prime added before going into the tank. I keep it at 27 ° Amm 0 Nitrite 0 Nitrate <10
Ph 7.5 Any other suggestions would be appreciated. Love this informative forum.
