  1. Default Green Spotted Pufferfish...question


    0 Not allowed!
    I have a little Puffer, and recently have noticed that his tummy turns a dark grey almost black color. He also has this after he eats; his Puffer brother doesn't have it.

    Can anyone tell me what it could possibly be? Should I be worried about it? If it's something I should be concerned about, what can be done?

    Thanks!

    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    I appreciate you sharing this link with me.

    i have gsp's and my hardest job is keeping them mentally stimulated. feed them different things all the time, change the setup every few days, and look at them and play games with them by holding things up to the glass for them to investigate and move it around so they have to chase it to see what it is. before i did all these things mine were not as green and didnt happily wag their fins, they would sleep, and get up for a few minutes, than lie down, they were boring, and grey. i started doing daily water changes and payed attention to them and all these things. now they are bright green, almost a neon turquoise on the top of their heads, and happy and curious. hope this helps
    65g planted: 1 black ghost knife, 3 pictus catfish, 1 striped rapheal, 1 golden dojo loach, 1 pleco, and a wack of snails (breeding for puffer food)

    40g hex brackish: 2 green spotted puffers.

    so many fish and so little room for tanks

    Wow, that is awesome! We just got our first two, Bubbles and Pudge and we have been researching every where so we can give them the best home possible. I was thinking of finding floating toys for them to play with. And we are hoping to get a black ghost knife in the future!

    There is a problem - these fish are strictly fresh water. They will not tolerate brackish water. Since this is a post under brackish water, I assume you have such a tank - if not, ignore the fool behind the curtain.
    Knowledge is fun(damental)

    A 75 gal with eight Discus, fake plants, and a lot of wood also with sand substrate. Clean up crew is down to just two Sterba's Corys. Filters: continuous new water flow; canister w/UV, in-tank algae scrubber!! Finally, junked the nitrate removal unit from hell.
