    Pea Puffer Facts/Pros?

    Hey everyone. Im contemplating getting 2-3 pea puffers in a 10 gallon. My lfs sells them for 6.99 which isn’t bad. My dad doesn’t really care since he knows I’ll do every I can to take care of them. And my mom is umm.. the opposite lol. She thinks its dumb to get them because “its a 1 inch fish...

    Cherry Shrimps For Beginner?
