Nice roach clip..errr..I mean tank!

The big plant on the right looks like Amazon Sword to me. Rotala Indica maybe in the middle? On the left I think I see Anubias and some Bacopa. Not sure about the rest. Hopefully some of the plant ninjas around here will respond and give you some accurate ID's.

So its been a year... wow, a lot has changed in this tank including the puffer i tried adding a second puffer but the old one ended up stressing out and dying : ( so there is only one in it now.

Most of the plants in that tank out grew the tank and are now in my 20g. I have since rescaped the tank with white sand, anubias, and lace rock, check it out

You need to de-worm that puffer ASAP. Looks like he has internal parasites and has little body fat because of it. Look at its eyes! Get some Jungle Parasite Fizz tabs and soak its food in 1/4 a tab. Keep doing that for a week or two. Poor guy!

Check out http://www.thepufferforum.com/forum/

This is what my lorteti looks like 24 hours after a meal. She holds her bulge until the next day.



EDIT: Oh and the tank looks great.

Ha ha, he he! DAncE whEn yoU're HAPppy! He he he! DAnce, danCE, DANCe!

I like the new setup. Did the ottos survive the 1st year with the DP?

The paperless office will become a reality only after implementation of the paperless bathroom.

Thanks for the feedback, I've been trying to fatten him up latley but i have noticed that he doesnt seem to hold the weight. I am going to try the fizz tabs and see if that helps, I have also had sucess with safe-gaurd the k9 dewormer with other issues in my community tank, so i guess ill try those and keep you guys posted...

Good luck! Hope it goes well, just soak the food for a long time and if it refuses to eat you can soak it with some garlic to help.

Thanks! I had to move them out eventually because the first puffer kept nipping fins , but I have 2 newer ones with the new puff and they are doing well along with some ghost shrimp.

I dosed with the jungle parasite in his food, let it soak for like 5 minutes then gave it to him? Hopefully he responds to the medicine and puts on some weight, how long should I dose him for?
