Funny I was just thinking about my Puffers sleep pattern the other day. I have two of them. One likes to sleep in his cave (from a fake driftwood and with rocks.) and my other one seems to just NOT SLEEP! well he does but he moves around everywhere. lol I think he is a sleep swimmer. LOL the Gobies in the tank with them sleep in the sand area. =) thanks for the cool thread!

EDIT! OOPS did not realize this was an old thread! RIP

My new first ever puffer (dwarf puffer), seems to really like sleeping on top of the small heater that I have in his tank 😂

My F8 Puff slept in his stump. He loved that stump!!! Here is a pic of him, looking out the window:

On Friday mornings he slept in, and always in his stump. He lived in my classroom in a 75g brackish alone, I teach marine science. On Monday, I'm not sure he ever went to bed in anticipation of snails upon my arrival... After a quick meal though, my Puff was a crack sleeper. He'd wedge himself into a crack, or sometimes he just hovered under the filter overflow box (I have a HOB overflow, the aquarium is not drilled). He liked to keep an eye on everyone while he slept, I suppose the stump offered too much privacy during the day.
