  1. My Congo puffers one eye is swollen and almost shut. I did a water change today (second picture). I woke up this morning and he was like this. The tank is heavily planted and when I did a water change the water was still clean, didn’t notice anything out of the ordinary. Does anybody know what this, or has dealt with this? Or know what to do? 1st picture- picture of eye in question 2nd picture - picture after water change (one hour later, more inflamed) 3rd picture- before anything was wrong, healthy eye.
  2. Thanks for the add! I’m desperately trying to figure out what’s going on with my Congo puffer. Long post ahead I apologize I had gotten him along with a few other fish, skirt tetras Congo tetras. My tank has been established for awhile My skirt tetras developed what I thought was ick, and even after doing the Ick-X they all dropped like flies. I realized it was probably epistylis. Neither my puffer or any of my congos were affected. I did a water change and thought that was that Shortly after my puffer developed white spots, i immediately quarantined him and bought Kanaplex, focus and tried feeding him medicated food. He’s been refusing his food even with the garlic guard. Some days he looks better. But this has been a week, I tried adding the kanaplex into the water with no changes. Since it’s a hospital tank I do daily water changes to give him clean water, but I’m at a loss as he doesn’t seem to be doing worse or better and I’m concerned about his slime coat. Any advice would be highly appreciated. My congo tetras are still not affected whatsoever with whatever ailment
  3. Sergeant Ruby is my first puffer. I got her for $50 from a local hobbyist who was breaking down his tank. She's been such a joy to have. She gets along with all her tank mates and never makes trouble. She used to have a best friend that was an American flagfish. Sadly he passed away and Ruby barely moved for a week after that. She is fed a diet of ramshorn snails, bladder snails, and a variety of live worms raised in my worm bins and cultures. Anyone else keep this cute species of freshwater puffer?
  4. Hi I have a question I have a 40 breeder with a congo puffer and 3 panda garas. And their doing great. Im in college so moving a 40 gallon tank every semester can be a chore so what I was going to ask was could a congo puffer live solo in a 20 long ? If not that is perfectly fine I was just wondering. The other thing is could he or she live comfortably without overstocking and live happy and not stunt growth.
  5. Hey I have a question I have a spotted congo puffer that I got 2 weeks ago I did not have a quarantine tank at the time so I put him or her right into the tank. He or she is eating great, but look like he or she has some ich along with possible fin rot he or she's tail was a little banged up from shipping. I got a quarantine tank today 10 gallon. Is it fine if I do maracyn, Para cleanse, and ich x all together. I know Cory does that with all his fish regardless if they have anything, but I want to make sure if I combine all those medicines that it will not kill my 300 dollar puffer. Thankyou for any info.
  6. Hey guys I have a 125gal that I have Nicaraguan Cichlid, a small Synodontis Catfish, a Porthole Cory and a Congo Puffer. The Nicaraguan's are shy and need a dither fish. So I was using Giant Danio but when I add the Congo Puffer I noticed them bothering the Puffer and I don't want that. So I removed the Giant Danio and am looking for something else to help make the fish more comfortable. Anything out there that won't pester the puffer and would be fine with the Nicaraguan's? I worry about Tetra's out competing the puffer. Barbs, Mollies, Platy and Swordtail pestering the puffer. Guppies getting eaten bye the catfish.
