    So, I didn't get a chance to snap a pic, but my brackish tank has a pair of figure 8 puffers and some assorted young livebearers. The puffers get snails or frozen food every other day. I put flake in every other day for the other fish on opposite days. I saw one of my puffers slurping up the...

    Alright.. What Else Can I Put In This Tank? F8 + Bumblebee Goby
