Hello everyone! I'm new here, but I'm not new to keeping freshwater fish. I currently only have one tank up and running (55 gal
) that has nothing but schools of tetras in it. I'm trying to figure out what I want to do with my 10 and 20 gal
tanks. My 10 gal
used to be a breeder tank for my live bearers. And my 20 gal
used to be a semi-agressive tank.
I went to the petshop I used to work at and they just got in some mini-puffers. I've never had a brackish tank before and I've never cared for brackish fish. I did grab a caresheet for them.
I have 2 concerns: 1) salinity of the water, 2) eating habits. The caresheet says they eat frozen which I don't have a problem with considering I alway feed my fish frozen about once a week. But the thing is I know with some fish they are finicky eaters. How well do puffers eat? Has anyone had any problems getting puffers to eat? Also, about adding salt to the tank. How much should you add for a brackish tank?
Also, I know that you can aclimate mollies to brackish water. Do puffers get along with other fish like mollies? Or should they be kept in a species only tank?
Sorry for all the questions. Any and all info would be great! Thanks!
