For the past several months, on and off, I have read up on puffers. I emptied out my 29 gal
to specifically have a puffer tank. Now that I am getting closer to actually buying them im kinda afraid I will mess up.
As much as I read information, I just like having someone to say "What you are doing/about to do is correct, good job!" hehe just as reassurance.
I know I don't want dwarf puffers. But after that, im not sure. Figure 8's and spotted are BW and SA's are FW
, right? How difficult is BW maintanence?
With those three mentioned above how many of each species can be kept (safely) in a 29 gal
? Isn't the rule every puffer needs 10 gals of space?
Food and teeth "filing" I understand and am not worried about. Its just the quantity and water conditions that concern me.
I believe someone at my LFS
said I could keep tiger babrs with puffers... is that true? Or would that not be advised in such a small tank?
Also, I asked a question at the end of someone elses thread about plecos.. but I figured I will mention it again here-
for the time being my 6-7in sail fin pleco is in my 29 gal
(until I get my 75gal up and running). Will he be okay in there with any species of puffers? Or should I just wait to move him before I add puffers?
If anyone could personally answer my questions AND send me to some good links to read up some more I would greatly appreciate it. (I tried searching for the puffer articles but couldn't find them.. all i found was the puffer forum, which helped a little)
