Thanks!

I love the foxfaces too. If I had a bigger tank one would definitely be on my stock list.

Hear is my foxface, he's a weird fish. He's really cool and beautiful.

It's. vortek mo40. He seems fine with it so far. He hangs out next to it actually. Instead of hanging out on the opposite side of the tank

Yeah mine would hang out right by the one that sucked him in. It was pretty ugly when I found him. I had to shut the p/h off and push him off of it. He had a ginormous hump on his back. He recovered miraculously. We miss him. Also watch out for mr puffer rubbing his eyes on the glass. I've heard that even though glass is smooth to us it's very porous to them and cuts their eyes.

This is something I noticed, that he swims back and forth against the glass. I'm hoping this only last a couple days. Break in period. And he starts using the other 179gallons lol

If your puffer seems otherwise fine and with no signs of physical damage it might be just that he's bored and hyper.. Is your tank heavily decorated, any rock mazes? Puffers are a 'smart fish' and get bored easy

Haha! Don't blame you! I'm thinking of getting a figure 8 but all the stores have them in FW. Need to research how to acclimate to BW.
