Dwarf Puffers?

I'm looking to get one or two. Any LFS in the 5 borough area have them currently? i picked up a few before at Fishtown USA a while back but have not seem them stock with puffers again. Thanks.

If you get them from Pacific Aquarium, just be sure to pick the healthiest (fattest)? I got a bunch from them. While they're all doing well, I felt really bad for the others in the tank because many had begun to decline from lack of eating. The employee who helped me said they were fed frozen bloodworms; you could see some leftover bloodworms in the tank that were left undisturbed, despite the fact that there were many little puff eyes staring back at you.

I suggest feeding them only live for a short period, because mine would not eat the frozen stuff for a month or so.

^ what he said. I saw quite a few with sunken stomachs. I got the fat ones.

Also, I don't know how old these guys are but I think most if not all were females. I didn't see any that I thought were males for sure.
