SCAPE is just in it's early stages and not everyone has met each other, we're trying to organize "regional" SCAPE meetings to have maximal attendance.

Also, right now, SCAPE members who are in college are starting/will start midterms, and other people are quite busy. We haven't gotten together yet to decide on a set date for future meetings, but we'll do that once the club becomes a little more established.

How big are the pieces of driftwood that you have? I'd be interested if they're small enough for a 10 gallon as well as some Flourite. I have a ton of snails and could use a dwarf puffer, but I'm cutting back on feeding, so we'll see how that goes before I introduce a new fish and risk stressing it out. =)
The driftwood is pretty large but some might be small enough for a 10 gal.

I have a 5 gal bucket of 50% Flourite and gravel. I had this in my 40 gal and it is still good. I just decided to change everything when I needed to take down the aquarium. The 5 gal bucket you can have for just a few stems. But I also have a Full New bag of Flourite also. I really have no use for it right now and will let go for $15.00 and some plant stems. That is a real deal since it cost 24 bucks at Strictly Fish. The price sticker is still on the bag.

The Puffer is up for who ever wants it. I don't have anymore snails in my 8 gal or 40 gal.

If you're sure it won't nip fins, I have an excess of pond snails in my 10 gallon "community" tank that could use some cleaning up. Just don't want anything to happen to my fish in there right now.

I just got some GDA/GSA these past two days. Now I have an explosion of snails. Grr.

From what I've heard, it's a hit and miss with dwarf puffers on nipping...so if this one has been shown to not be a nipper, it's likely a "safe" one, but there's always the chance...

As for the Dwarf Puffer I have not seen it nip at the free swimming fish. I have Cardinals and Rasboras and it leaves them alone. But have seen it nip the bottom dwellers like coryies and probably other bottom dwellers but mostly when it does not have snails to eat, like right now. Who ever wants to use it for a week or so for snail control we can make arraingments to have it picked up. Then if you want to return it at the next SCAPE meeting that will work out just fine.

The driftwook is not branchy but I will take it to the next meeting for who ever wants to look at.
