Hi something_fishy,

I frequently check out two "Puffer-specific" web sites.
http://www.pufferlovers.com
and
http://puffernet.tripod.com/main.html

Both have oodles of information about Puffers...
Puffernet has a Diagnostic Flowchart that may help you diagnose your little guys ailment.
http://puffernet.tripod.com/diag-flowchart.html

I hope this helps.

My puffer is better now

I tried everything and was almost giving up when I heard to check my salinity. Turns out it was at 1.000 when it should have been around 1.004. So, I did that over a 2 hour period and he got all his colour back and started eating and being active again..

Thought I'd use this opportunity to show off some pics as well as show that Puffy is doing allright..
