    Dwarf/Pygmy Puffer

    I have 3 dwarf puffers and I have never really kept puffers before. I am aware that they eat snails and frozen food rather than pellets and flake food etc. If I don't have many snails in my tank do I need to buy live food/snails for them? Any advice would be useful, Thanks

    How Many Dwarf Gouramis In A 60L Tank?

    My tank dimensions are 60cmx30x35 Approx. 60litres (17 US gallons) So... the question is, how many Dwarfs can I put in there? Future tank mates (most likely): 1) 10x Hasborus Cory Or 2) 6x Panda Cory Or 3) Just Dwarf Gouramis :)
