  1. Can the Easy Green Fertilizer be used safely with a Fahaka Puffer? I am planning a 120 single Puffer set up planted with lots of rhizome root plants.
  2. First of all I apologize for another help/advice post, but I cannot for the life of me treat this or even find anything that seems to fit. So Im throwing myself at the mercy of the collective brain for help... Maybe the puffer king, the nermbasador himself, can bestow his wisdom upon me. Would anyone be able to help identify the internal parasites in this baby Fahaka puffer so I can best treat him, and possibly have a recommendation for treatment? You can almost make out little worm squiglies but I can’t tell. He’s in a quarantine tank with cycled filter and gets a water change twice a week, once 20% just to vacuum the bottom and another 30-50% after the meds. So far one round of the med trio and then another round of Maracyn and ParaCleanse with little improvement. No visible worms expelled. Oh around 7, water fairly hard, ammonia/nitrites/nitrates 0 because of the frequent water changes (I avoid WCs during meds), temp around 77. I can only get him to eat live brine shrimp, where he plumps up a little but is deflated again the next morning and cannot put weight on. Feeding a few brine shrimp 3 times a day now just to get him to eat a few shrimp a day. He follows and looks at other food but then shys away. I’ve tried everything I can get my hands on, garlic dipped or not. Also tried soaking his food in vitachem just to see if I can maybe get some vitamins in him but he won’t eat anything but brine. Frozen: Mysis shrimp krill blood worms and brine shrimp; Live: Daphnia and brine shrimp; xtreme nano. Live brine and maybe 1 daphnia on occasion is all he takes. Stool is little reddish brown balls in a string like loose beads. Can’t seem to find info or examples of this anywhere. Doesn’t seem too lethargic considering his emaciated condition. I’ve got Levamisole HCL being delivered tomorrow (11/4) and will be treating with that followed by a little epsom salt in the water, water change, and another round follow up. Trying to see if someone can point me in the right direction to try to cater the treatment. Hate to just keep throwing meds at him. Please help 😞.. Video of underside of the belly. Thanks in advance!
  3. Recently acquired a Fahaka Puffer about 3 weeks ago, he’s been doing well but now is showing signs of internal tapeworms (pearly white poop strands). I do have paracleanse that I bought off the co op but my question is, is it safe to normally treat the fish the same as directed on the box. Or should I go about it another way. He’s been doing really well eatin blood worms but I noticed him not eating today just eyeing up the food and the in away, looks quite skinnier than he ever did. Please help!!
  4. Hi everyone. I’ve been reading tons of articles online about Fahaka puffers and as always I’m seeing lots of conflicting info on recommended tank size. I’m in the UK so don’t have the same standard size tanks as you have in the US but I’m looking at having a custom tank built for him. I have space for a 4x2x2 and I’m thinking I’ll have a sump. Can anyone who has experience of keeping these fish tell me if that will be a large enough tank long term? Thanks
  5. Hello, I need some advice, I bought a used 125 gallon tank that needs a really good cleaning. I would like to have a fahaka puffer, but I’m not sure of something’s like. The filtration, what would be good for this puffer? Food, I’ve read what to feed puffers, but not how much in one setting and how often? Thank you, Patti 🙂
