Came home today to find him stuck inside the filter intake tube he was tiny but I didn't think that would happen. Super bummed. I will pick up some foam to put over the intake and try again.

I really should have known better, they are so curious and not very good swimmers. Well I guess live and learn.

Would 2 of them be alright in a tank that size?

I am going to set up a tank that is about 7 gallons and wondered if I might be able to have 2 pea puffers in there and have them get along with one another. It doesn't seem to be an issue at the LFS as there are a lot of them in one tank but I know that just because they do that doesn't mean its a good idea.

Sorry to hear about your little puffer....I find it surprisingly sad when a fish dies under my care.

Went to the fish store today and picked up two little guys. They were old enough to pick a male and female. Also fixed the inlet.

Thanks guys! I will keep everyone posted on how it goes with two of them.

On another note I ordered another GU10 LED to add to this fixture. I will post pictures of the new lighting as soon as its done.

So they've been getting along well together?

And how did you add that pothos? Are the roots in water, or what? I've got one that's been doing well in a soil pot, but I wanted to see about aquafying-it..
