Just a few DP pics

I've been playing with my macro lens some more and after some patience with the puffers, I managed to get a few good shots.

I call this one "fatboy", although it could be a girl. It's the only one I can pick out with a quick glance.

I've been trying to sex them with the tell tale signs of striped belly or wrinkle behind the eye but these fish don't have either. I really don't know what I'm looking for exactly. I've had them for about 6 months, not sure if they are mature enough to tell them apart. Any ideas?

That's her job. She laughs at me when ever she gets a chance. I told her I would like to get a dwarf puffer fish tank. We will see who laughs then!

Imagine a 300 gallon DP tank. You could put close to 100 of these fascinating fish in there.

I did that to my parents once and they thought I was *drunk* and loopy, and thought I was well, not a sane person LOL
