    East midlands area. They were the first fish I ever kept and I'm looking to get back into them. I kept multifasciatus but I'm interested in any. I'd rather buy private than use a store. many thanks

    Puffer Id Please :)

    It won't ever be truly identified without DNA sampling, but if you look up "sabahensis" on google you'll find lots of people with similar looking puffers proclaiming all kinds of care needs for them. Enjoy!

    Dwarf Puffers, What All Potential Owners Should Know

    Green bottles are considered piscovores, so I wouldn't mix them with any other fish, but Ive had some success with lorteti/irrubesco mixes. Won't always work though...

    Puffer Struggling To Eat

    I've never known a DP to need it's teeth trimmed. And the majority of pufferfish species offered in fish stores are freshwater.

    Breeding Irrubecso Puffers?

    So i've not kept tropical fish for some time as I've been busy with my work, relationship breakdown etc. But as of recently I'm back in the game. Has anyone bred Irrubeco puffers while I was away? I'm of the assumption the trick is soft acidic water over java moss, 1 male to 2 females, and them...

    Uk Law On Tattoos

    No, that's a myth. Adult consent makes no difference. You cannot tattoo a person under the age of 18 in England and Wales without prior consent of a qualified medical practitioner.

    Uk Law On Tattoos

    Go to your local police station, tell them the circumstances and make sure they're aware of the infrequently used "Tattooing against minors act 1969" (yes, it exists.) It's an old statute but if I remember my training rightly (so long ago!) the only real defence is that the person didn't know...

    Dwarf Puffer Theoretical Tankmates

    I can tell you from my experience of keeping DPs and trying a few unusual tankmates, the only success I've really had has been bumblebee gobies, bigger puffers, and BN Plecs. There were quite a few casualties from my various attempts!

    Puffer And Bb Gobies

    I have had success mixing BBGs with dwarf puffers, but again, you've got to be able to feed them. My theory has always been that black and yellow we know are "danger colours" in the wild, such as bees and wasps, so they're left alone. That was further affirmed when an archer fish ate a BBG of...

    Marbled Eel?

    Yes, to confirm the above, it is G. Tile. Brackish, higher end of salinity rather than lower. Don't do fantastically in captivity, but the one I kept was very personable.
