    Question Pea puffer/dwarf puffer?


    0 Not allowed!
    In my 55 gal tank I currently have 10 rummy nose tetras, 3 kuhli loaches, and a peacock eel.

    Will a pea puffer/ dwarf puffer be compatible with these?

    No. Dwarf puffers are very territorial and should really only be kept singly or in same species tanks, and in those cases it needs to be heavily planted. They do okay with Oto cats but that's about it.

    Puffers are from brackish waters and not recommended with freshwater.

    Besides, you need to add at least 3 more kuhlis for a proper school.
    Da name's Paul. Not Dave. ROFL

    Learn to give and take. That's how things should always work.

    Pea puffers are fresh water puffers. The only species of freshwater puffer if I'm not mistaken.
