Hi from Belgium!

Post by Matts »

Hello,

I’m Matt from Belgium and I’m looking to keep Tetraodon Schoutedeni, but I’m looking for some more information about this puffer. Which is why I’ve signed up here.
Obviously English isn’t my first language but I hope I don’t make too many mistakes.

Looking forward to learn a bit more about these wonderful puffers! :mrgreen:

Your English is good! Have you kept fish before?

Oh I see I made a mistake with the title, it should have been Belgium.

Yes I've kept freshwater aquariums for about 12years now.
Mostly nano fish, shrimp and crayfish though, this would be my first pufferfish species.

At one point I had 7 or 8 tanks running, but I had to downscale.
Now I have a 60l/15gal communitytank with hundreds of bloody mary shrimp, a group of salt and Pepper Cory's, boraras brigittae and a pair of honey gourami.

And I have a 170l/45gal cycling for the future puffer, and an old 20l/5gal for some snail breeding.

Schoutedeni aren't really much different than most any other FW fish, other than their diet.
