New Puffer

Just wanted to share a couple pics of my new dog face puffer. He aclimated very well and has a great personality. As soon as I walk in the door, he's up at the front swimming like crazy. I took this pics after the lights went off last night because I was bored. Figured I would share.

I did a lot of research before buying this guy and always heard they were "messy" eaters. I wasn't sure exactly what that meant until I got him home. Wow, they weren't kidding, he tears his food apart and spits it all over the place. He looks like he's having a blast as he does it too!!

Of course, I'm having problems posting the pics in here, so you can check them out in my gallery.

Adorable little guy! I like the one where he's swimming over the rock - great little look on the guys face.

tipper- Very cool pics, I have a baby porcupine puffer that was a very messy eater as well but ive noticed that if i break the food into smaller peaces he leaves no left overs. Worked for me!

How many tank do you have??? You have a lot of fish...... I have a Baby DFP also he was maybe 2-2.5" long when I got him.... He is around 3.5" now they grow fast. Mine eats it all sucks it right in no mess.... They are cool fish. I only feed him every other day to help with the #2 factor.......
