My Nile Puffer is about 6 or 7 years old now. He has always been kept in an 80 gal community tank. He lives with cats, bristle nose plec, skirted tetras, giant zebra danos, an Avacado Puffer and a very smart crayfish. He is great, very smart, and more additude than Opra! He is now about 10 inches long. One thing to keep in mind when keeping these fish in a community tank is they are a little lazy and will not go out of their way to chase other fish, so any fast moving fish is pretty safe. Ours also likes to bury himself in the sand and wait for lunch to arrive!

I have 2 little greenspotted puffers and they happen to be my favorite in my tank. I have a 55 gallon tank with tetras, guppys, mollys, sharks, and loaches. They where the last fish i wanted to introduce to the tank. I havent seen any nippin from them. They are also about the size of the neons in my tank so they might not be agressive yet. I hope they dont get agressive. They are always the last to eat making sure the others are far away before aproching the worms. they are my favorite to watch in my tank.

I have a 55 Gallon tank with a varity of fish 4 spotted puffers, 1 black african knife, 1 avocato puffer, 1 target puffer, 1 12" pico, and 1 fahaka puffer. I also have a red ear slider. Fish stores told me that i was crazy, but i've had my tank for 1 year and everybody gets along just fine. I had problems of fin nipping at first. So I started feeding 3 times a day and slowly droped to 1 a Day. They all know how I am and come running when I open the lid. The turtle will eat out of my hands and loves frozen minnows. So if your going to start an exotic fresh water tank. Provide lots of plants, feed well, and never add new fish.

Thanks,
Jeremy Cook

We have 2 Green Spotted Puffers, not only are they cute and entertaining, but they are smart. They swim to me and play when I watch them and they know that they get fed morning and night. so as soon as they see me walk by to go to the kitchen to get their food, they are waiting for me when I come back. Awesome fish, I really hope to be able to breed them.

Best not to keep with larger puffers (5 cm+). I did that once and these little cuties were gobbled up by their bigger cousin daily! Also when I kept it in a comunity tank with guppies those puffers didn't live long. I must say it's really cute!

we have 3 green spotted puffers. they are adorable. they are so active and they really do keep us entertained for hours. one of them follows its reflection all over the aquarium. one of them also likes to play in the bubbles from the filter and the other one loves to play hide and seek. i am so happy with them. great purchase!!
