2 Free Fat Healthy Baby Dwarf Puffers

Would love to give these two to an EXPERIENCED keeper. I'm breaking down all my freshwater tanks and just going reef. Doing maintenance on just 3 reef tanks in a Manhattan apartment is enough.

They eat like pigs.

They do only eat Hikari frozen blood worms that have been thawed and they will take Hikari freeze dried blood worms but they don't like that nearly as much.

Pick Up Only by Union Square.

Here are some pics of them some time ago. They're cute smart little buggers and I'll miss them.

Post here to claim them. I'll be giving them away under my discretion.

Hey there, not sure if these guys are great for someone just stating out. They need pretty clean water and their feeding isn't easy.

Yup - my 4g they'll be going into has been up and running for nearly 7 months (filter, co2, heater, heavily planted, bred shrimp etc). I'm not the most experienced, so certainly feel free to give to others if you have takers. Thanks!

Sorry, I just did a quick search on my phone earlier and one of the posts was "just starting out" so I made an assumption during a meeting.

Just to be clear, these guys will die at 40F

When these guys become adults, I think they'll probably go after your smaller shrimp, is that okay with you? If so, let me know, you can come get them tonight.

Absolutely fine re: the shrimp. I have just bought equipment for a new tank to move my shrimp into anyways, so was looking for fish to populate this one (along with the one oto and amano i have in there).

hah - this is NOT my keep by the window snail tank, so temperatures range from 75-80 on this one.

I'll be free anytime after 7:30pm tonight. I'll PM my number/email and we can go from there. Thanks!

I've read that the only fish that DP's get along with long term are Ottos so that'll work out great. Your otto probably could use a friend or two in there. Apparently they do much better in groups.

Good to know, I'm heading to Ctown after class to grab another amano for my other tank. Will get my otto a buddy.
