besides the feeder snails are you planning on any other fauna? perhaps shrimps would be too easy for him to pick on but I wonder if a CPO or something could be interesting....
There are a few ottos in there too, I might throw in a few ghost shrimp just to test see what happens, worst case the puffer gets a nice snack.

I just have the Tetra 50 watt preset heater. I've used them before and never had a single problem. this one hasn't let my tank move from 78 yet.

My tank is so heavily planted and has caves and driftwood arches for her to explore it's practically impossible to get a pic. I love these little guys so much.we need an I Love Pea Puffers thread. Lol

Back on the forum after two moves across two years! Slowly getting back into the hobby!

beautiful little setup! I've been wanting a pair of dwarf puffers for a while, and considering I just setup my 14g I may have to do it. Can't wait to see more pics!

Cool tank. Everytime I am at the LFS I am checking out the pea puffers.

I am thinking my next tank will have a few of these guys for something different. So cool to watch them.

Great tank. I am thinking my next tank will be a pea puffer as well. The puffers don't bother the Otos?

It's pretty simple, just used GU10 6w LEDs and GU10 bases. And the rest is pieces i modified from Home Depot for out door flood lights. Total cost was about $30. It's a little ghetto right now I need to finish it and paint it.

Haven't bugged them yet. Everything I read says they are one of the only fish you can keep with puffers.


The little guy has colored up a lot since I got him. Killed about 20 snails so far and is happily taking blood worms.

Thanks for the pic, would you know if there are arms with a base for those G10 fixture? I tried looking for them on Homedepot but couldn't find any.

I had some puffers too, they never ate much beside live brine shrimp. Do you use a tweezer or just drop the blood worms in.
