10 gallon cycling for Dwarf Puffers

Post by Mrscpoulson11 » Fri Aug 18, 2017 11:22 am

I'm so excited!! It'll be my first puffer tank.

Everything is cycling normally and The plants are growing well. Taking my time as I'm in no rush.

However I've seen a LOT of conflicting information of stocking. Everything from "I've had 8 in a 15g" to just one needs a 30g.

What do you guys think is a manageable and non-stressful number for a 10 gallon. I've been debating just doing one but the 1 make 2 female ratio just sounds like I would see a lot more activity.

But above all else is my puffers comfort. So I don't want to "max" the tank or anything. :)

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