Psalm thanks for your input.
I actually had two dwarf puffers. I have a friend with a DP tank and I "borrowed" two from his tank. You are right, generally speaking, they are not community fish. One had to be removed as he started showing signs of unprovoked aggression. The second one, however, has fit in quite well...don't even approach other fish. I have some experience with them and kept a close eye on both. I tried it out only because I knew they had a home to go back to if things didn't work out.
That being said, I posted a similar post in the Ferts section. I realize that I am overstocked but its been at this capacity for nearly two months with 0 problems.
This cropped up just this past week. My suspicion is on the MG Potting Soil. Only one small plant is currently buried in the substrate so its mainly going unused and may be releasing urea (according to some advice from Hoppy).
Nevertheless, I will remove some fish and also the MG potting soil and see what happens. I'll keep you posted.
