NEW TANK!

Post by Manbear » Mon Oct 07, 2019 12:13 pm

I have just set up an new 37l tank specifically to get 3 dwarf puffers.
I have set it up with various caves and plants for them to hide in, but was wondering if this tank is big enough as i have looked at various websites and they all say different things.
The fish guy at my local fish shop said that a 37l tank would be big enough for 3-4 but just want to make sure.

If this tank is too small could i potentially keep a lone dwarf puffer in a 15l biorb tank that i own?

Thanks

[welcome]
37L should be OK for 2-3 DPs. Be sure they are 1<M/1-2F or 3F.
The 15L biorb is pushing it.
