    I am a new DSP keeper but I do have two female Dwarf Spotted Puffers in a 20G tank and they get along wonderfully so far. They lived together at the LFS for more than 6 months that I know of so they were buddies already.

    Mine eat Snails & blood worms and actually live with [And essentially ignore so far] two molly fry that survived the "Great molly purge of the 20" and I have not bothered to catch them yet [But I will].
    BTW I am not suggesting mollys as tank mates, This was an accident. It didn't spell immediate disaster though.

    My Other LFS has a pair of DSP [Also female if adults & I think they are as they have been there a while also] that I intend to add to this tank for a total of four in my Standard 20 when I feel it is 'junglefied' enough.

    IMO - They are tiny and curious but cautious fish that are very interesting to watch.
    Gas mileage isn't everything OIIIIIIIO
    Lack of planning on your part does not constitute an emergency on my part.
    Why pretend there are no stupid questions? Actually, There are many stupid questions: "Should I drink this bleach?" Is just one example.
    Having said that, Just because it's a stupid question doesn't mean that it shouldn't be asked. It's better to know.

    A warm beer is better than a cold beer. Because nothing is better than a cold beer, and a warm beer is better than nothing.
