    Here is a quick video of my dwarf puffers eating, the noise in the background is my youngest objecting to me directing my attention somewhere other than him lol. Kinda shaky, sorry.

    That's awesome. They like to hunt them down. Cute!

    How long before mosquito larvae turn into a mosquito?

    They stalk everything lol!

    According to this site, 7-14 days:)

    There are 2 males and 2 females in a 29 gallon cube, I plan on getting a couple more girls soon. They are really fun to watch, I am glad I finally set up a tank for them.:)
