That's crazy that you only have 1 dwarf puffer in the 33g but tons of shrimp. Looks great though.

You have given me a great idea, I'm currently looking for driftwood, and have access to some old hardwood, but it's all fairly straight. Most of what I've seen in tanks has been gnarled and branchy. I really like the looks of your Java ferns attached to the straight boards. I love the moss wall growing in the background too, and am jealous of your hair grass... I just can't make myself pay $8 for a small square of dwarf hair grass at the LFS since I'm a newbie to all this, I feel like it would be a waste...

In any case Beautiful tank! I love that puffer too!

Thanks for all the kind words!!

I lost the puffer..... he got stuck between the moss wall mesh and the glass I was really bummed....

But life goes on.... and the aquarium has become over run by shrimp and snails I tossed a half dozen assassin snail in there a few weeks ago, shouldn't be long before they clean the place up!

I'm kinda undecided if i wanna another Puffer?

Here's a few photos i took at dinner time!!

Hello the pictures are not showing up but I am guessing it looks as good or even better than it did when it was started. I would get a trio of puffers and see if they would breed for you and that would help the snail population.
