Just set up this tank earlier this week for dwarf puffers. Did a fishless cycle for the first time.
Cut the foam from an established Aquaclear 70 to fit the Aquaclear 20 on this tank. Put the rest of the sponge in the bottom of the tank. Added a nylon full of substrate from an established tank, and used water from an established tank. Some people say this doesn't help, but it can't hurt.
Also used bacteria in a bottle.
Tried feeding the dwarf puffers for the first time. One of them ate a bunch! I don't think the others ate any. Hopefully tomorrow.
I had to edit out half of the video where he's eating because my 4 year old is prancing around naked on the other side of the tank, which we didn't notice until we watched it afterwards.
The little punk had clothes on five minutes earlier!!
One if them has been winking at us! Lol.
