What do I have here? freshwater Puffer ID help

Post by Niblet » Wed May 22, 2019 1:23 am

I answered an add from Facebook and they guy said he has this Congo Puffer with a 20 gallon and a bunch of nice plants for 100.00 for the entire set up
I am on it, since I LOVE Spotted Congo Puffers, I arrive and he says,,there it is,,and I cant see it,,,I look and look and finally I see it buried in the sand.
well my Congo puffer doesn't do that but hey, whatever, I get him home and get the tank re-set up and I really don't think this is a spotted congo,,
supposedly he is 3 yrs old,,,I have no idea,,,forgive the messy tank,,I just got him and am slowly acclimating him to MY tank standards
Thanks in advance

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