Somewhere I have a more up to date photo of the tank which I'll post when I find it.

I'm a bit excited today because I have more plants arriving this week and todays water test suggests it's pretty much cycled :D

So I added 3 Dwarf Puffers today, they're called Kruger, Vorhees and Myers.

Because I had added plants from already established tanks and a bit of seeded media, there was quite a snail population building up. The puffers had a field day and set about hunting snails within 10 minutes of being added to the tank.

I'll add some photos as soon as I can get some that aren't blurry lol

I'm supposed to be making some dinner, but I can't stop watching them.

Looking forward to pics!

I don’t really know anything about puffers. Can they be kept as single species? What are their tank requirements?
