New puffer

Here are a couple of shots of Kymmes newest critter. Nobody seems to know much about them so I'm kinda winging it with this one. Well...nobody seems to agree on much about them anyway. It's a Figure 8 puffer (tetraodon biocellatus). He seems happy...was chomping on a piece of krill within 5 minutes of being added to his new home.

I know what you mean. Everyone has their own opinion and swear by the their facts and results, and often those opinions/facts/results totally contradict each other.

I frequently visit these "Puffer-specific" web sites.
http://www.pufferlovers.com
and
http://puffernet.tripod.com/main.html
Both have oodles of information about Puffers...

Maybe some of it will help.

couldn't you just put some salt into the water to minamize the chance of ick?
I have read that the indian dwarf puffer is the only true freshwater puffer,
so it shouldn't make much difference to the figure eight.
but dont go off my advice, coz it could be wrong
