a 10 gallon tank - so i figure one of each (green and albino) would probably max out the tank. but before i do this i wanna know if the albino will school with the green - if not i will just get 2 green instead of an albino.
the advice i have been given (and seems to work so far) is frozen blood worms... generally i feed the barb flakes a bit ahead of time so he doesnt take all the bloodworms for himself. i have been told as the dwarfs get bigger that i should feed them things with a shell (meal worms, krill, etc) because their beaks continue to grow and need to be warn down. i have read that if the puffers are not 'trained' early on to eat non live food then they may only eat live bugs and such. thankfully my two seem to like the frozen worms... i will give them a few meal worms when they get bigger than my thumb nail!
thanks for the info on barbs schooling - shape not color, good to know!
yeah, i knew about the snails, i even went so far as to buy a small tank to farm them for the sole purpose of feeding my dwarfs and my GSP. unfortunately, as stated before my little guys all got fish TB so i had to go through the bad experience of ending their pain. i do want more cause they are great little guys to have, i just wasnt having luck feeding them(possibly cause of the TB)
