Dwarf puffer question

Have a ten gallon aquarium that I wanna get a puffer for. Would it be better for me to get one or two puffers for my ten gallon?

one is always better than two. most people like to keep as many fish in their tanks as possible though.

I agree with Terrance. I have not kept dp, but I have researched them a lot because I considered getting one. Technicly, multiple dp's would be possible in a tank that size, but that tank has to be VERY well planted to break up the line of site. Even then, no guarantee more than 1 dp will work. However, they are territorial more than social, so 1 would be quite happy having a 10g to explore IMO.

Cool. They are very pretty. Which tank are you going to put him in? I am guessing you already know about the salinity requirements and diet and stuff?

Yeah he is a cutie! I love him. How do I keep his teeth from over growing?

He needs to eat a lot of snails and other hard foods like that. They can be kind of difficult to keep because of all the hard foods they need.

Does it matter on the size of the hard food. Can it be like crab legs, cocktail shrimp, etc. How small do the snails need to be, can they be any size or small ones? And I do know about the salt levels he is a baby right now so he needs fw to low end bw. Anything u can tell me would be helpful. Thanks!
