hi im new but thats not the point
in have a porcupine puffer and it doesnt eat food
all it does is look through the glass and it seems to fear its reflection it angers me as it seems to die off from starvation and another fish is bothering it
how can i get it to eat?
i really dont care bout the other fishes bothering it
i tried to feed it goldfish,shrimp,etc.. but it ignores it and continues to be difficult.

I retract my statement since there is an external problem causing the fish stress. Refer to comments below for correcting problem.


Oh and welcome to AA

Ouch, good questions, I didn't even consider that. I assumed it was a stable tank. Sorry

The size tank and telling us what fish is bothering it might explain something.

Then one of the 2 fish needs to go back .
Please answer the other questions esp the tank size and age . It sounds like you may wish to return one as they are both agressive with the trigger being moreso IME

Send a message via AIM to chimmike
definitely need to know the size of the tank. Puffers require large tanks.
