F8 Puffers Tankmates

Post by Frobins » Wed Aug 07, 2019 8:22 pm

Hey all, so I have recently set up a 55 gallon and have my heart set on getting F8 puffers. I used to own a 20 gallon with pea puffers and fell in love, now I think I am ready for brackish. My tank is starting to cycle now and I was thinking about getting a pair of F8 puffers, and maybe some other fish. Any recomendations? I know they are nippy and some-wha t aggresive, and was wondering if their was any kind of schooling fish that would work, if not that's fine I didn't think so. Any bottom feeders that work with them, or should I do a species only tank? Thanks!
