Question Howdy!!!

Hello everyone! I recently got 2 Pea puffers for my 5 gallon*Fluval Chi tank. Ive never had puffers before. When i was younger my family had 2 50 gallon tanks filled with mollies, guppies, betas and a HUGE pucostimus*sp* *its berns quiet awhile since ive had fish forgot how much fun they are.*

I do have a question about my puffers (Jean Claude Van Damme and Donnie Yen). I just got them on the 4th and to me they act weird compared to all my childhood fish. These 2 float to the top of the tank to "sleep".. I thought they were dead a few times but everytime i went to net them they are suddenly alive and well. Is this normal?!?!?!*

Well, from what it sounds like you didn't cycle your tank. In that case, you'll need to read this:
I just learned about cycling but I already have fish. What now?!

Also, what all do you know about puffers? Here's a good resource:
Dwarf Puffers : Home

Besides the cycling issue, you should really consider taking at least one back. 2 dwarf puffers in a 5 gallon is questionable.
