Howdy all..

Having been away for a week I thought i'd post an update.

I was a bit nervous as to what state my puffers (especially my baileyis and savatti as they are very new and still settling in!) would be in. I had somebody going in to feed them everyday who is an experienced fish keeper but has never kept puffers...

Thankfully a full head count and everybody doing really well!!

1) My Suvatti was eating relatively well before i left (would have 4 or 5 shrimp every few days but only if i put it right in front of him). Today when i walked in he swam straight for the front of the tank looking for food. He ate 6 defrosted clams straight away!

2) My big baileyi (the one that didn't arrive in great condition) who was just starting to eat before i left, also swam straight to the front looking for food and took 4-5 clams straight away.

3) my small baileyi's doing equally well - all of them came straight to me and had 1-2 clams each.

I'm so pleased that all of them have settled really well, I may not be as experienced as a lot of people on here but I guess I must be doing something right if they're eating so well / easily :D

PS scrap the whole 6 month rule, hoping to get a Leiurus tomorrow and miurus (and possibly diboisi) in the next week or so.

Though pretty soon I will be running out of room for new tanks (and $$$!!!) :roll:

I hate you and DM. My Congo eats pretty good and is active. The suvatti hardly does a thing and eats 1-3 worms a week tops right now. Definitely doesnt come to the glass.

@NJD, Glad to hear the new puffs are doing good.

@PYRU, sorry the puff has taken so long to settle in.

NJD, I think you may be overfeeding them. Are you skipping any days?

Hubby has called more than 1 of my puffers a "turd".
