  1. Ooh! I will have to find live brine shrimp now *^* I love watching them eat. Thanks for the suggestion
  2. I have yet to name the 2 females, but the male's name is souffle He puffs up every time the girls steal his worms.
  3. I've had the hardest time trying to feed these little guys . . . Starting with frozen bloodworms. Only one of the three would even touch them. Even then, it seemed a bit difficult for them to eat. I noticed they'd suck on them rather than actually eat the whole thing. I tried ramshorn snails next. This was successful but the dead snails and empty shells everywhere was a bit of an eyesore. Finally, I called over 10 local pet stores in my area and found one that sold live blackworms! They're a hit. I bought a dollar's worth and have been keeping them in a small container. I feed them a tiny speckle of fish food daily and change their water daily. They're kept in a small tupperware container at room temp and they've been doing great for a few weeks now. Hope you guys enjoy it! Thanks for all the help. Though the forum is goldfish-oriented, the advice on puffers in this section is spot on
  4. YES Thank you for confirming. I will do that. I swear they are literally the same color I was hoping for that! Thank you for your input.
  5. I'm starting up a new planted tank, currently doing a fishless cycle to get it ready for some fishies. My tap: Ammonia: .25 Nitrite: 0 Nitrate: 0 I accidentally added too much ammonia on the first day, 10/4/14, 5 days ago (it was a long day and I kind of zoned out when pouring), about 5 or 6 ppm. Being lazy, I just left it in there. The next day, I added used filter floss I got from a friend. I tested the water yesterday and it read: Ammonia: .5 Nitrite: 0 Nitrate: 10/20 I added a bit more ammonia that night, got it to 2 or 3 ppm. Today, the water reads: Ammonia: 1 Nitrite: 0 Nitrate: 40/80 Where am I in the cycle?

    Dwarf Puffer setup questions

    I'm in the process of setting up a dwarf puffer tank and came across your post on one of the forums I actually got pretty excited knowing how amazing you are with fish and plants. And photos! It looks like everything turned out great. Will there be any more updates?

    No Longer Bare, Sandy Bottom! Super Pic Heavy!

    amazing how much it brightens up the tank How's your experience been with maintenance? Does it seem to get dirty faster than darker sand b/c it's white?

    ECR unboxing

    It is very exciting but quite nerve-wracking too, not knowing whether the fish has made it alive or not Though with Cynthia's super thorough packaging, I really don't see how much can go wrong.
