The puffer seems ok. He swims around, he eats. But I do notice that the spots are increasing. Does that mean the protozoa are nearing their "drop off" stage?
My salinity right now is at 1.021 and I cranked up my protein skimmer a little bit. I kept my temp at 82 degrees F.
I do notice that although the puffer seems to eat and move around, he tends to breathe fast. I don't know how the normal breathing is for porcupine puffers. But this guy has its mouth open and like this "inner lip" is just opening and closing fast.
Do porcupine puffers usually breathe at a fast rate? He's not inflating or anything, just breathing fast.
, I came home with a dead blenny. Its tummy's bin bloated eversince I had him 4 months back. I don't know what killed it. That sucks.......the coinky dinky in this whole thing was I just bought a Red Tail Filefish without knowing yet that the blenny's dead.
So it was this weird instant replacement event.
