I am preparing to get some Indian Dwarf Puffers and since the puffers are territorial, I thought it would be best to purchase their tankmates first.
I have decided to go with Tiger Barbs, Rosy Barbs, Turquoise Rainbowfish (or maybe Bosemani ?), and possibly one pair of Kribensis.
I went to my LFS
to get 4 Tiger Barbs... They only had 9 in the tank and I didn't feel right about breaking them up, so I took all 9 of them. Yeah, I know, I'm a pushover.
I am going to wait until the tankmates are considerably larger than the one inch puffers before I acquire the puffers.
I am currently waiting for my 35 gallon swim-through tank to cycle but here is a quick pic of my Tiger Barbs in the Quarantine Tank.
