Dwarf puffer questions

Post by Jessab » Sun Feb 09, 2020 11:40 pm

Hello everyone,
Thanks for all of the great DP info. I have learned a lot already from your posts. A few questions of my own for you. Have had my school for about one month. Definitely will upgrade from 10g species tank to at least 20 g and plant more heavily. Wondering if I have to worry about blindness issues from a krill/bloodworm diet. Going to try feeding tubifex worms and Daphnia also. Could just be me but seems like their light blue eyes look more like a greenish yellow recently. Will keep the light off when not viewing them. Had the temp set at 76F then up to 78F (range suggested by seller) but I felt like they seemed more peaceful at 76, so I lowered temp and am keeping an eye on their activity. Any thoughts or other suggestions for keeping them healthy/happy?
Ammonia 0
Nitrates 0 -.5
pH 7.2
Thanks!
