New fw puffers

Well, I had to do it. Picked up three of these guys (3/10.99). I've been considering them for some time. They are very skittish, hope they calm down. I finally got them to eat today. They are in a tank chock full of hitchhiker snails as well as ghost shrimp but they don't seem interested. The lfs was feeding them live black worms so that's what I'm doing. Here is the only clear pic I could get of one. They are neat.

Very nice fluff.
I've always liked the puffers but have never had any myself.

I have a South American puffer and I think it is one of the most interesting fish I have. It gets along great with the other fish in the tank, including angelfish, and I haven't seen any signs of aggression towards the other fish except for the first day I had it.

The way I turned mine around was to feed live adult brine - after that they accepted whatever I put in the tank, and no snail was safe, even the large mystery snail that they pestered and pestered until I removed it. Great pic of these cool little fellows. You gotta love those little faces
