    Hi all, I recently joined this forum so I thought I would share with you my story and most recently completed project. About 10 months ago my sister got a betta fish in a 4 gallon aquarium. This sparked the memory of my first ever fish tank. A ten gallon aquarium in which we had several...

    Hi, I have a 5 gallon tank and a 10 gallon tank, both planted and cycled. I want to get a betta for one and a pea puffer for the other. I am on the fence with pea puffers and hope someone out there owns them to answer. So many people say to just get one, which would mean the 5 gallon. Others...

    Looking to buy several Dwarf Puffers (Carinotetraodon travancoricus). Would prefer 5 or 6 tank-raised puffers over wild-caught but will make an exception since these guys seem to be out-of-stock every where else.

    Hi everyone! I want to share some successful results of an experiment I've done with Biter, my pea puffer. She is a super aggressive little tyke, and she will eat anything that moves in her tank. Annoyingly, if there's any algae in her tank, there isn't anything that can eat it and escape her...

    I've been admiring pea puffers for a while now. I have read that they should be in 5 gallons or bigger. Do they need that much for the space, or just for water quality. I've been pondering setting up a 2 gallon tank with a 5 gallon sump filter, so there would be 6-7 gallons of water circulating...

    So I have a few options. 1 in a 8 gallon 3 in a 10 gallon I've heard that many owners have deaths in the first few weeks. I'm paranoid if I get 1 it might not make it, and then I'm not sure when I can get more as I'm driving 2 hours to get them. What would you guys get? 3 in case and hope at...

    I'm setting up a heavily planted rimless dwarf puffer tank. It's a 10 gallon and I'm hoping on about 2-3 puffers. Will I need a lid? I've read conflicting information on if they're jumpers or not. Thank you any comments, any other tips would be appreciated and if you have a dwarf puffer tank...

    Hi there! 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...

    So, I've finally decided to try a med-high tech setup after about a year of only low tech. A couple days ago a friend gave me a 10 gallon with three dwarf puffers.There are two males and a female. Equipment: Malfunctioning Tetra heater Crappy led light Whisper filter The heater keeps...

    **GONE** I have two pea puffers that need re-homed, but I'm uncomfortable shipping these guys. I'll be driving from Beaver Dam KY to Richmond KY area on the 6th and I'll be able to hit anywhere in between really, for anyone here in KY that wants them! PM me if you're at all interested...

    So, I have been planning to get a pea puffer for my 10 gallon with plants, (swords, java fern, crypts) and I noticed that my LFS has them in brackish water, (1.005). I have known pea puffers to be specifically freshwater, and when I asked about it, they said that theirs are not freshwater, and...
