Hi guys and girls
Not been on here for a while. I've been in the hobby a long time and had fw
planted and marine tanks. After a break I've decided to get back into the hobby again with a small 55 litre (15 gallon). So I've began setting it up with a fine gravel and started a fish less cycle. Planning/hoping to keep a bumble bee puffer in there. I've done as much research as I can find and am aware of the dentistry and food requirements etc but I have a few questions that I would like to hopefully clear up before committing to anything.
1. After reading conflicting information does anyone know of these are a brackish or freshwater fish
2. With the dentistry and feeding requirements can anyone advise a means of care while on holiday(vacation) for a week or so.
3. How many? I originally read that one solitary fish would require 15 gallons and the fish is best kept in groups of 6 or more or as a single specimen. I have since read suggestions of 3 4 6 and one site advising that they should definitely not be kept alone.
4. Can anyone recommend a snail or hard shelled food that can be easily bred and reared as food for my puffer.
I'm sure I had more questions when I began writing but my mind has gone blank. I'm sure I will add more later on
Thanks in advance
