New to the world of puffers

Post by Stangman » Tue Feb 13, 2018 7:34 pm

Hello I just acquired an Abei puffer very interesting fish. I have been looking thru the forums and have found a lot of valuable information. I was only wondering if there is a way to sex them visually or do you have to vent them. Not sure I want to handle it that much( have watched what it can do to shrimp and crayfish).

[welcome]
Great find!
There is no way to sex an abei. I wouldn't vent a puffer, since you probably aren't going to be breeding it.

Then you may want to consider a 75g. Keep checking the selling sites I mentioned.
