  1. Hi everyone! I have a spare 29 gallon tank that I would love to put a Pig nose puffer in, I have quite a few different freshwater puffer species, so I know I would be perfectly capable of keep one, my question is that I know a 40 breeder would be the perfect tank size for them, but would a 29 tall be adequate... I have seen many mixed suggestions online and just can make up my mind so I would love to get some other opinions
  2. Nerms..... My hairy puffers have formed a pair from my 3 in my "guesstimation". Color changes and heavy, what i am assuming, can only be pre-spawning behaviors and courtship. Im so pumped to see the process i started in 2018 possibly result in fry i figured i would share witth the crew. So awesome just to get a pair formed and displaying like that ive been updating the videos all day. Lol
  3. There was a video on Instagram where people were burying bycatch pufferfish so that animals wouldn't eat them and die. Does anybody recognize the species? I have a feeling it's saltwater, I couldn't find anything close on google. Thanks!
  4. Hello all, I know that this is a hotly debated topic, so I wanted to weigh in and give my opinions. This is in no way concrete or universal, just MY observations from MY tank. To begin, it is widely thought that there are no community suited dwarf puffers; I have found this to be untrue. I have a 29 gallon tank with 4 Irrubesco puffers (2m,2f), 10 ghost shrimp, 8 Kuhli loaches, 6 pygmy corydoras, and 1 honeycomb catfish. To date, I have lost 2 of the petsmart ghost shrimp to old age (who were then subsequently eaten as a snack). Every other fish is healthy, happy, and thriving. The puffers mind their own business, occasionally chase each other, and watch their tankmates with vague interest. I feed the puffers frozen bloodworms and frozen spirulina brine brine shrimp. The honeycomb catfish gets floating pellets after dark. Everything else gets sinking food. Occasionally, a puffer will eat at the floor with the shrimp. I found Irrubescos to be some of the more peaceful fish i've kept, and being able to keep puffers with species that will help clean up after them works wonders. I highly recommend keeping Irrubescos if you want to try to have a community puffer that is smaller and cheaper than a Congo Spotted and 100x less work than an Amazon. Obviously personalities will very, but I have found that time progresses, all 4 puffers are mellowing out even more, and are able to eat from the same tweezers in a group without fighting. 10/10 Recommend
  5. Came across this poor fella all washed ashore along the beach while out for a walk. I was like... M U R P H ???!!! 🤭
  6. Hi there! I’m looking to purchase a figure eight puffer for my new (empty) 40 gallon brackish water tank. No one in my area sells them so I was looking to purchase one online. What would be the most reputable source to purchase one from?
  7. I received this question on Instagram and thought I’d put it up here so others may find it in the future. “Hi there! I had a question. That I haven’t been able to find an answer to online. I have a female Congo and about a week ago started hanging out chilling on the bottom of the tank a bit more but was still swimming and eating. As of yesterday, she is sitting still, not swimming, holding here mouth open and breathing heavy. All of my other fish are fine, no new fish or changes, and my parameters are good (0 ammonia, 0 nitrite). Any ideas at all? I honestly feel like she’s gonna die bc she looks so bad but it happened so suddenly I want to try something to save her.”
