Here's a great video of a DP using its defense mechanism:

Yes puffing up is not a good thing.

Sorry about your loss! She was such a cutie. I hope your next girl does better. I have heard that dp do better with gender ratios like mollies because it disperses the aggression among multiple females. Just curious, do you guys think thats true, or do they usually do ok in pairs (provided that they have enough tank space, obviously)?
I am considering getting one, but I just have space for 1.
Your little male is super cute.

he is so active and follows our fingers, or are faces and eats right from the syringe i feed him blood worms its so funny. i def didnt have enough plants to break their line of site and we plan to get another girl once we plant it out a little more... they are so awesome!!!! so much personality, awesome you should get one. and i wouldnt be surprised if they do better with 2 girls to 1 male ratio, sounds ideal.

I am I Kentucky and the only place around me that had 1 was wal mart and the last time I was in there they didn't have it so I guess I will set the 10 gallon up this weekend and start searching for one.
