My Schoutedenis Update

Post by lilacamy931 » Sun May 20, 2018 5:02 pm

Just an update on my gorgeous schoutedenis who after their near death experience with the fish delivery van are doing well.

One is growing more heavily than the other but both eating well. I'm ever hopefully I might get a female and male when they mature, either way they are apple of their puffer's mums eye.

Introduced a lot of new plants as had some die off and keep things interesting. Currently running a Fluval 306 and will upgrade later in year to 406.

Need to figure a way whether I can rewax/varnish the oak tank itself as water marks from water changes.

Lastly my snail colony died during our recent kitchen change so we are getting a 60 litre Biorb to restart the puffer feeding colony

I'm sick of seeing these things. I'm about to put 50 a week back if they're still available in a month I'm biting the bullet.

Nice fish and love the greenery. Did you get these from wetspot?

Thank you both :) They are as spoilt as I let them and they love exploring new things.

Aw PYRU - they are expensive but absolutely worth it. Not just for the looks but personalities. If you can you won't regret it. I am in the UK so it took me 20 suppliers to find someone who could get me two into the country!

I've been on the fence about it for months now. I have it, but this is my way of flipping a coin. If they're still around then I'll take that as a sign :).

Do you have any feeding vids or anything?

A great supplier who really cares about his fish & customers is Wesley Wong. You can find him on Facebook. Tell him Pufferpunk sent you!
