    I have been told and have read that some special of puffers do well in a community tank. But, when I read about the different species of puffers none appear to play nice with others. Does anyone know if there is a puffer that lives well in a freshwater community tank? Our tank has the...

    Hi All, New to this forum, and have not had a tank in years. Previously had always had 40 gallon+ tanks with simple plants and lighting, stocked semi-randomly and impulsively. Recently had a friend give me a Marineland Portrait 5 gallon aquarium, with the back filter section divider removed...

    Picked up a 3 gallon (roughly) for my Mom on her birthday as she was enamored by my dwarf puffers. Nice little cube has a little HOB and pretty well planted to boot. Grabbed the Finnex Fugeray Planted+ as she wanted to grow "pretty plants" and quickly found out that was overkill... lol The...

    Went to pick up dog food at the local pet store and walked out with a bagful of plants and 3 fat dwarf puffers. Wasn't planned, but they had around 15 in a tank with 20 other fish so I decided to rescue a few as I already had an empty puffer tank. Also the healthiest puffers I've seen in a...

    I have a heavily planted 30L tank with Eheim Ecco Pro 130 (2232). How many dwarf puffers could I keep in there? Some people have said 5, others say only 1. I was thinking maybe 3 or 4 since it is heavily planted which will diffuse aggression. I will be doing 50% water changes also. Thanks!

    Well I am the proud new owner of a 11.33 gallon, High Clarity Low Iron, Glass Cube. Dimensions: 13.78" x 13.78" x 13.78" For the stand I found an old speaker at Good Will ($6) and the fit is nearly seamless. So I gutted the inside and turned it into a storage cabinet. So now I'm trying to...

    I've got a 6 gallon Fluval Edge that I would like to begin adding live plants, and then put Dwarf or Pea puffers in. Is this tank big enough? If yes could I house more than 1 puffer? Are Dwarf and Pea puffers the same thing? Appreciate any help! Note: I have a separate 20 gallon planted...

    Hey everyone! I'm looking for some nice healthy cherry shrimp in or around Lexington for pick up. I'm also in the market for another puffer either freshwater or brackish. (Would buy crayfish feeders and snails too) thanks! 🐡

    Hello, just wondering is there a alternative to a puffer fish. I mean; looks kinda the same but is not as aggressive? if not, are there any low tempered ones for a small community?

    I got a paired of puffer fish and bumblebee goby & I've try feeding them everything possible but they are very picky eater. The only thing I've had success with, is brine shrimp; but they are too much work, expensive & died easily. My question is... what other alternative live culture foods...

    Hi! I've just been getting my daily 'cute fix' from YouTube videos of dwarf puffers, and now I really want to get one. Some questions, though: 1: My best bet for getting a puffer and not having all my fish bitten is to find a semi-attractive way to section off a portion of a larger tank. How...

    I was unable to find anything definitive on whether or not it could be done. So, I did it. And I have had success so far: 10% Salt water, reef mix; 80F; 3 GSP; 100s of Snail shells. My bacopa is THRIVING. Spiral Vals are stunted, but still reproducing/ spreading. Baby Tears are doing...

    Hello there! I have a 5.5g, I was going to put Betta coccina in there, but sadly the person I was going to buy from never replied and I haven't seen any at a reasonable price since. This tank has been empty besides sand, driftwood and a few plants for over a month. I've finally decided to get...
