Pea Puffer Breeding

Post by wilk.clau12 »

So a few months ago I bought 3 pea puffers to get rid of my snail population. It worked very well. I do not currently know the sex of them as the things i found on Google are contradicting. I didn't intend to breed them at all but I looked in my tank and there's at least 20-30 babies. I honestly don't really want more babies and don't know what to do at all. Does anyone know how I can sex them and what I can do with all the babies. I have a 36 gal with just 1 Molly and 1 swordtail in there. Will they continue to breed without any intervention?

Is the molly or swordtail female? DP babies are like a speck of dust. They would be very difficult to feed.

Any chance you live in London, I’ll take 4 off your hands, I’m looking to buy captive bred instead of wild caught and I’m struggling to find!
