    You will have to get him out of that community tank at some point.

    Neat fish puffers, but feeding them can be challenging.

    I got my own puffer picture. If the picture does not turn up in the text, but as a thumbnail, maybe somebody can tell me how to change that.

    The easiest way to do that is to upload it to photobcuket then copy and paste the img code

    I was concerned about those little white spots myself, but they never change and so, apparently, they are part of the fish.

    Something I never see anybody comment on is that these green puffers are chameleons to an extent. You might note that he looks slightly green. At other times he is a fairly bright yellow or a kind of dusty brown. Maybe the little white spots have something to do with the color shift?

    As long as they're not 3D... you're fine. Ick is like little salt particles and would appear 3d, but if that's part of the fish's coloration, then the spots won't be raised.
    Yup, I got fish!

    Very nice pic.
    My puffers also change colour depending on thier mood . . if they are happy with thier conditions, are well entertained and are liking thier water, then they are a very vibrant colour.
    When they get bored or sleepy, they deem to darken and go an almost dusty colour as well . . they get very moody !
    As long as thier lower bellies stay a nice white then they are good, its when this area starts to darken that you may want to keep an eye on them and double check the water quality.

    As for the ick looking spots, these are actually tiny tiny spines that they have just under the surface of thier bodies and its perfectly normal.

    lovelly fish, loving mine !
