I ordered some Figure 8 puffers at a LFS
(have not paid yet). When I came by 2 days ago, 4 of them were grouped with 6-9 green spotted puffers.
The GSP were looking good, but the F8 was in bad shape. They slimmer than the GSP and tails have been nipped off (tails of GSP were perfect). I walked right up to the glass, and the F8 were hiding at the top corners of the tank or behind a rock. All the GSP swam toward my presence.
I really wanted the F8. Should I still get 1-2 of these guys and try to nurse them back to health? Maybe negotiate on the price of the F8? Make some kind of deal?
