Finished my DP tank! Yay!

Finished my dwarf puffer tank. I have two because I had to rescue them from Walmart! They were keeping 6 in a 3 gallon tank! It was horrible an they were with tetras! Their names are Lord Puffington and Lady Puffington one of them has been really feisty she's been swimming up and down the tank since I got them! Here's some pics. I used white gravel and some live plants

Sorry to say this, but you do not have dwarf puffers. You have green spotted puffers. You might want to google their care.

Yes they are better in your care. Their life span will decrease dramatically in freshwater, but they might live ~5 years in freshwater. Perhaps if one day you are interested in saltwater, then I'd recommend to triple their life span.
