WOW...my 2 green spotted puffers are picky, but not THAT picky! They will eat frozen bloodwormsTylee said:Not 100% about all puffers but my one (the congo puffer) is defintaley not suitable in a community tank.
i am lead to believe that most puffers are very agressive but can tell you that mine is for sure agressive! hes only 1 1/2 inches long but has tried to eat my bala sharks which are twice his size! i have now bought him his own tank and territory.
i find it hard to feed him aswell and he will only accept live foods if its not wiggling or kicking he will turn his nose up at it, for example live bloodworm he will eat, frozen bloodworm he will not!
i was also told by my LFS that they can grow up to a foot long, but only time will tell on that one!
hope this helps a little but someone else may have better info
I picked up 2 puffers, not knowing WHAT they were, they were just neat.20gall~gal said:How are puffers (and what kind) in a freshwater tank with community fish?
Oops, I forgot, I can't help you identify...but I agree with armadillo, get it identified as soon as possible. Call the store where you bought it...they will have a record of what kind it is!armadillo said:He looks cool, but that definitely is not a dwarf puffer. Indeed urgent to get it identified in case he's salt water.
