I really don't know much about these little guys. I knew they were brackish but I googled and it said you can change them to fresh or salt by slow drip acclimation. So that's exactly what I did. I got them from Walmart (*shivers* never would of done it but they're the only LFS I have around here that carries them)
They have a little bit of fin rot that's cleaning up nicely. You may see it in the pictures.

I got these little guys 2-3 weeks ago (got 2) and over the last couple days I've noticed one in particular has had a bit of a belly. Yesterday it was there. I fasted today until 10 PM to see if it was because of feeding, but it seems even bigger today! I'm wondering if it's prego, if the other is a boy, and how long until she delivers. I am freaking out can someone please tell me if it's pregnant and if the other is a boy??

And if so, how do I raise the fry?

Btw, I feel the picture kinda sucks at bringing out the belly. It is pretty big.

No records of captive breeding? So what's wrong with her?

There's no chance she came in pregnant is there?

I just googled a picture of a prego GSP and it's exactly what mine looks like :/ and I guess on yahoo people are saying that it's happened to them before.... But I don't know what to do.. Yahoo is untrustworthy obviously but there's so many questions about it and people saying that they've had eggs before and stuff... I'm really confused now...

They get pregnant? They don't lay eggs? When it comes to puffers, terrance is the guy to pm!

No they lay eggs. I usually just say pregnant on accident.
