LOL thanks Travis and btw there are a lot of factors that come into play with pea puffers. How long did you have them? Were their bellies sunken in? What was the LFS feeding them? Did they hover over the same spot repeatedly? What kinds of foods were you feeding them and did they eat any of it? Were they full grown or juveniles? I've had a lot of experience with them(except for breeding) so feel free to PM me. BTW unlike what most people believe, there are other ways to rid your tank of snails...The safest way I know of is to sink and reuse a piece of vegetable(such as a carrot) then scrape the snails off daily until there are no more but make sure that you leave it in there even after you cant see any just incase there are eggs left; the baby snails will latch onto the veggie way before they're sexually mature. I've used this method countless times and it has always worked, however, I keep puffers whenever possible

Thanks for the offer but my tank is fully stocked right now. I really wish I could take one more though :'(

No problem. Maybe I'll post it here when I really figure out what I'm gonna do.

Yeah I wanted to put a few angels in my tank but I found out they will get territorial and eat smaller fish ie all of my inhabitants sans oto's.

Hey felf, I noticed you are keeping baroras brigittae. Do you keep these with dwarf puffers? If so how did that go any casualties? Today my tank went species only all chili rasboras and I don't think i'll be able to put puffers in now.

I currently don't have any puffers but when I did, they never attacked ANY of my other fish if they were purchased as juveniles and matured with those fish(shrimp are another story...) I wouldn't risk putting puffers with your chili rasboras but I've done it with no problems however, I always kept the puffers well-fed.

Hey my chili rasboras (bororas brigittae) stay in one spot all day. This doesn't seem healthy and I'm wondering if anyone has any clues as to why this may be happening. I don't want to lose a bunch of fish. I'm really at a loss for what to do. Any insight would be appreciated. Thanks in advance, Travis

I've noticed the same behavior with those chili rasboras in the past. Mine would always chill near the filter pipes at the surface. The only time they'd venture off was to eat. I think they prefer staying near the surface in general, so I would make that section of the tank a but more comfy for them. Try adding some floating plants and get that moss-covered manzanita going. I'm sure that if you give them a more 'secure' area to roam, they'll be more apt to explore.

Just my 2 cents.

Hey thanks! That's exactly where they cruise. I'll probably be getting the manzanita in the next couple of weeks. Hopefully that'll fix it.
