Karen B. Posted January 30, 2022 Share Posted January 30, 2022 Greetings! sooo… I went ahead and got a 10 gallons tank (don’t even know where I will put it yet… 7 aquariums in a tiny apartment is a challenge, as well as finding stand that are solid enough) I would like 2 apistogramma but I beleive 10 gallons is on the small size for them to thrive. Do you agree? I was also always interested by pea puffer. So now that I see an opportunity, I have been reading a lot about them. The problem is there is so much conflictual information… I just din’t know what to do! The tank will be planted, heated, have a HOB filter and a sponge filter, substrate will be gravel. Personally I only want 1 pea puffer. I hate agression or fish chasing each other (I had a male honey gourami, everyone kept telling me they were a social specy and to get more. I got 2 females and now all the male do is chase them. I was told it’s normal behavior but that’s now what I was expecting as social fish and enjoy my tank so much less…) But I red they do better in group. Even read that a lone pea puffer can get psychological issues… So… can I have your opinion, experience, suggestions? I read a group of 3 is best in a 10 gallons. 2 f and a m, but as juvenile it’s hard to differentiate them… Do I buy like 6, put them in the 10 gallons all together and as soon as I can spot a male and 2 female, bring the other one back?
