I bought a pair a few days ago. Without question they have become the personality of the tank. Can't imagine not having them now. Great find/catch...

I had ick on a goby so I bought a cleaner shrimp for the tank. I put the shrimp in and everything seemed like it was going to be fine. I walked away for about 20 minutes. When I came back I saw that my little green spotted puffer's stomach was huge. It had bit the shrimps head and tail off! I was so angry at the little guy I almost flushed him. Lesson learned but I wish my lessons wouldn't cost me so much money...

I purchased my little guy a few days ago. he is the cuttest little thing ever. I was afraid at first when the guy at the store told me they are aggressive fish because I have a couple other fish in my tank and an albino frog. He has a very unique personality. He is very shy and seems to be afraid of the other fish in the tank, even my eel. He loves the bloodworms and knows it is feeding time when I open the lid. He wants to come to the top of the tank, but is afraid of me. He is only about 1" long and a fat little thing. Hopefully soon he will warm up tp me and the other fish and stop being so shy.

I have a Spotted Green Puffer, and I think he is pregnant. But all I know is that he is an egg layer but I have no clue what the eggs look like nor do I know how long it takes them to hatch or know how to tell if they are pregnant. Sorry if I seem mean its just that well, I just got them and they are so cute, so I don't want to loose him yet. Another thing is what does ick look like and can it spread!?

Green spoted puffers will need full marine water when they get older.

I have done reasherch on green spotted puffers (gsp). The gsp's will need full marine when they get older they start out in fresh yes. If u have gsp then you want them to be in the best shape they can be. You will need to match the store water conditions then slowly transfer them to full marine. email me at greensta6099025@yahoo.com n i will give u a good site or got to www.thepufferforum.com my user name there is greensp i am in the chat room alot. sine up there it is completly free.

My puffer died today. I was only feeding him flakes so I think his teeth over grew. Either that or it could be that he was traumatized when I cleaned his tank for the 1st time. Either timing would make sense. Poor puff.=( I'm getting another, any tips on what to feed him to keep his teeth down?
