Haha the time I win it's not a pic of my puffer; figures :P. There were some great pics for this month, a lot of them were tied for a while. Great job everyone.
I took that pic at the Chicago Shedd Aquarium a while ago (2yrs or so) when I went there on a biology field trip for college. This was before I found the puffer forum, so I was surprised when I went through my old pics to find out I had taken a pic of an MBU!

+1 @PP, can't wait to see the lineup for POTY!

They are all very adorable! I really am a terrible loser, I can't play video games. I mean no disrespect to all the other puffers at all. I've thought of getting a freshwater puffer for a while. Still not sure. I would love to set up another large saltwater tank too but it's so much work. Don't think I'm motivated enough.
