    AH! I have spent a ton of time reading and emailing people about this fish now. I think Im hooked. Planning all sorts of stuff already. Unfortunately petco drove out all of our LFS's but I am looking around. I think I might try to get one from a breeder (bad cause I wont be able to tell gender, but good cause Ill know how old it is) we will just see. Thanks a ton man!

    That would probably work, I'd definitely try to get a female for that setup though. You can tell males by the dark stripe down down their belly. The male and the female are both a little over 1 inch. The female is slightly rounder and has distinct spots on a green background. The male is almost completely olive green, except for his belly with the stripe on it, and a little skinner than the female. I got them at the LFS here in Boulder. Great fish, I highly recommend them.

    Im looking to have one in a 10g with a oto cat, and maybe a couple tetras or something. I would probably buy some snails for them to munch on too.

    Where did you get yours? How big are they? Thanks, Forrest

    Hey King! Ya, I have 2 Indian dwarf puffers in my 20gal. They are awesome. They're with some Tiger Barbs, Otos and shrimp and everyone seems to get along. They love snails and will clear your tank of them, so I feed them some out of my 10gal every other day or so. This keeps their teeth from becoming overgrown, plus It's a blast watching them hunt the snails.
