Those guys are cute! Great info!
I have a couple of GSPs, different enough that I think they are different species though. (I think 3 differents species are considered GSPs?)
I like the newness of keeping brackish but it does have it's limitations!

|dubels||Sadly I don't think the SA will make it much longer. Been battling with IP since I got him. Haven't been able to solve it with all kinds of medication. Got ich halfway into the IP treatment and had to treat with paraguard. If I can't get rid of the IP he isn't going to live much longer.|

Definitely have a lot of character. I can't wait to move them to a ten gallon. Probably going to swap out their tank with the ten gallon I have running and do a total redo of the ten once the latest batch of shrimp babies get to a good size.
Not a big fan of how hard it is to do a planted tank with this tanks stock light and how it leaks if the cords are allowed to go straight down.
If I am going to continue to house these two together I need to break up the sight lines more. No aggression yet but it could come at any time.

|twone21||I have two in a ten gallon. Wish I had a bigger tank for them. People think its weird how i only have 2 super small fish in a tank but I think less is more. They have more personality than any other fish I've ever seen. They seem to know who I am whereas other fish could care less.|

I absolutely hate this tank but love the occupants: 1 DP and 1 South American puffer.
This tank has huge condensation issues with the top and will cause water to drip down the back of the tank down the wires if they are not taped to the top of the lid. The problem is that the top of the lid is so hot that duck tape does not stay on it for very long and it will randomly leak all over the floor on me.
Anyways here are updated pictures:

I have 2 dwarf puffers in a 8 gallon tank with 1 pygmy cory (he was a rescue) and a bunch of cherry shrimp. The puffers treat the cory cat like it's their child, and they ignore the shrimp.
Mine eat frozen blood worms, but I try to make sure that they get the smaller sized blood worms. The bigger normal sized ones are harder for them to eat.
My puffs were super skiddish at first, and it seems to really take quite a while for them to warm up to others. The male always hangs back and watches, vs. the female who is always up front to say hi. I have had them for about 6 months now and I love them!

|dubels||Mine hates frozen brine shrimp. It must vary from puffer to puffer. As my puffers hate hunting, well at least one of them.|

|michaelracer||yeah i tried for months with many different types of frozen and they wouldn't even look at it|

I've had at least 3 dwarf puffers in a 25 gal.
I fed them frozen blood worms, which they slurped up like spaghetti. Slowly, but surely. Quicker fish would usually eat almost everything before they could. I hear they like to eat snails.

|michaelracer||def not, they should only be kept by themselves or larger puffer fish|

|HybridHerp||do you think a dwarf puffer would go well with endlers? I don't know much about dwarf puffers|
|07-25-2012 05:48 AM|
I feed mine frozen blood worms now only because one of the puffer does not eat snails.

That's a good idea. Definitely keep an eye on them. My two puffers didn't work out in a 5 gallon, which is why they got moved to a 12 gallon.
