Silmarwen I'm going back to the LFS today with some friends who've never been to ours, so I'm going to gaze longingly at the DPs they have, and probably start plotting to acquire one...

And my LFS has started carrying them. I may have to go take a peek tomorrow.
The personality on these guys is unreal! When I reach in to clean they both come right over to investigate

Thanks man! I agree but it's just the way the trimming went. These LEDs make the plants grow like crazy. I still want to add some wood to that island to add some height, just can't find the right piece.

Been a while since I updated, tank is still doing great and so are the puffers. Did a trim today and added a second AC20 that I got for free!

golfer_d What size of snails will they eat?

In my 10 gallon I have got a bunch of snails (thanks to a plant from a LFS) and some are getting to be a good size. I am not going to get my dwarf puffers until the new year. I am wondering if the big ones should just be pulled out of if the lil guys will eat them as well?!?!

PS: Awesome tank!

supermoto Thanks for the compliments! Yeah my 25 gallon is a snail farm, never runs out of MTS to feed these guys

Dayumdanny Tank looks great! Good use of the rimless edge with the plant growing out of the water.you have your own separate tank to farm snails for these guys?
