Hello I'm new here.

I have 4 Green Spotted Puffers. I have had them for 5 months. Their names are Pip, Pixie, Ping Pong and Pickle. Right now they are in a 46 gallon bow front but I plan to move them into 180 gallon tank once it is cycled.

180 is perfect for 4!

Hi! New to the forum as well as puffer keeping.I have 2 pea puffers named Gyro and Chopper... because their movements remind me of little helicopters 😉. I've only had my guys just a few months and this forum has helped immensely with many of my questions so I thought I'd join. Hope to learn much more!

Hi we are Tony and Traci and this is our first visit to this site. We could use some help, we just brought home a dog face puffer and a porcupine puffer. when we added the dog face to our tank he started to grind his teeth and looks like he was convulsing. Is that a normal distress feature for them?
