Welcome to AA

Need more info:

How large is your tank, how long has it been setup, what is the other stock in the tank, was the tank cycled, how large is the puffer, what/how much/how often are you feeding it, & lastly what is your current ph/sg/temp/nh3/no2/no3?


If you haven't figured it out yet I like to BOLD links :P
