View Full Version : New pics of Missy, my dwarf puffer

Snapped these the other day when she was looking at me like "where's my bloodworms Mom!?"

For some reason I love the pics I get of her and her reflection! She has gotten so much darker lately. I just wish she would accept another puffer for a tankmate...life seems pretty boring for her!

Wonderful pics. Especially the second one.

Have you considered getting more dwarf puffers and try to breed them.

I bought one a few weeks back....all went well for a few days, they were constantly swimming together and then all of a sudden Missy attacked Dip, and I am talking alligator death roll scene here. After that dip hid all of the time, wouldn't eat and we lost her/him. Since then I have been scared of adding another dp to tank since Missy has such an attitude! Although I did see 2 dp's today that were almost positively male (which was the first time I actually saw what I think is wrinkles on a dp) and came close. May still try it later in the week! I have a hard time saying no to fish and I so love my dp.

Unfortunately with dp's it's a never can tell situation. I have heard of people having multiple dp's fine, and others like me have lone dp's. The 10 gal tank she is in is plenty big enough for more dps even with the 3 adf's and lone otto, but if I try another one, it doesn't work out...here comes another tank! She was alot more active in community tank, but she is much darker in color all alone. The problem with com. tank was she started munching on my others fins...a big no no.
