New Pea Puffer Nano Advice Needed
I am looking for some advice on what kind of tank I should get for my fiancee because she is looking to keep pea puffers. From what I have read, I can keep one male and two females without issues. If this is wrong, please correct me.
I am also reading that people also keep amano shrimp and ottos with them without issues usually.
So since I have also read that each puffer needs 3 gallon per fish, I am thinking about an 8 gallon tank and up. Will 8 gallons be enough for 3 if it was heavily planted?
This will be her first aquarium, so she needs a tank where she doesn't have to mess with it too much outside of water changes. Mods are fine as I am handy and can help her initially set the tank up. She likes the looks of tanks with squarish footprints. She loves bio cubes, but understands that they are too large for our apartment.
As I said before, maintenance needs to be kept to a minimum. So I would also appreciate some ideas for plants. I think she would be fine dosing excel and maybe one other fertilizer, but that would be about it. So recommendations on a light would also be really helpful.
Sorry there are so many questions on one post, but this type of tank is completely foreign to me.
Thank you so much for any help!
