Smile Meet Petey

I rearranged some fish so I could adopt this baby Pea Puffer. He's in a heavily planted 10 gallon with spider wood and tons of plants. I have a huge colony of Ramshorn snails in their own 10 gallon for food. Petey also eats frozen blood worms. He is always hunting and hard to photograph but quite adorable!

Living on the dangerous side, Petey has 2 Amano shrimp roommates. So far he ignores them, fingers crossed.

I like "Petey". I've never kept a Pea Puffer. Keep us updated.

So far I am missing one shrimp for days but the other one is out and brave. Petey just looks at it and swims away hunting for snails lol. I am going to clean the tank today so I am hoping I will find the other shrimp. So far I haven't found a dead one and Petey's belly hasn't been round until I feed him.

I bet the other one saw Petey and went into hiding, like the little aquatic roach he is.

Nice looking puffer! Keep up posted on his adventures.

I love my pea puffers! Petey is going to be loads of fun! They really are inquisitive fish. Watching them hover around the tank on their daily errands is really funny sometimes Btw, petey will definitely be fine with Amanos. Mine act like the amanos in their tank aren't even there.
