This thread is really tempting me to make my next nano a dwarf puffer tank. Just one little puffer as my official stopping point for all renegade snails that show up in the community tank and the excess RCS. I've been hesitating to dedicate an entire tank to just one little bitty fish, but those pictures . . . I can't resist!

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

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...
