Does anyone here have pea/dwarf puffers? Can I see your setup? Pros and cons to owning one? Anything else you want to tell me? I'm debating on a single puffer for my nano but not set in stone. What about keeping shrimp with them?

We have one in an 8.8 with an otto cat. Started with 2 puffers but one was gone the next day so not sure if it was sick or the other one killed it. Never found any remains. Pros: always front n center when I get upto the tank. Mine eats well. Combination of frozen blood worms and ramshorn snails.
Cons: Tough to get a good pic of them their always “hovering” around. tank turns into a snail shell graveyard. Which in turn gets a little messy. Aside from that they are such cool little personable fish. Here is ours and his tank. Also if u look up kals tanks I have a video with him along with other videos of our other tanks. The link is in my signature if you can see it.

He is adorable and yes I am going to go check out the video. Thanks so much! Do they eat or destroy plants?
