I got a paea puffer yesterday put him in the tank and then a few hours later noticed he was breathing hard is this normal? He seems fine this morning and I medicated him just in case.
Ok so I shouldnt be concerned about him not wanting to eat either? I tried frozen bloodwroms and live white worms he wasent intrested he just wanted to hide in a coner. Ive never really had a fish not want to eat after a day or two in the tank but then again hes already pretty fat and ate before I purchased him. Maybe hes not hungry? After loosing a puffer to wasting disease im starting to become like a hover parentThats probably just because he was in a new environment. He probably got a bit stressed out since he had no idea where he was
Not really hes in my office which is fairly quiteWell, sometimes people say that you shouldn't feed your fish before 48 hours in the tank. I never really do that but maybe its still a bit of stress. Is the tank in a high traffic area?
He went into the tube I got him out before he could go in the bucket hes in the tank now right now hes lethargic he swam around a lot after after I got him outWhat do you mean you sucked him up? Did you put the water into a bucket anyway? Is he back in the tank? In what way would you describe his behaviour? Did he swim around at all? Cuz my pea puffers never really swim around too much
This made me laugh so hard that I snorted and woke my poor dog It provided a lovely visual for me and I’m still giggling!Well, I guess its just stress from the incident. Imagine minding your own business, when all of a sudden you get sucked up in a big tube.
