    I have recently had a few problems with my tank with a high Nitrate spike which I have now sorted but this led to most of my fish getting ICH. My Porcupine Puffer wasn't really interested in eating while he was infected but now when he tries to eat the muscles I give him, he breaks the food up...

    Hello TRT. I've researched high and low for a good answer, but I've drawn a blank at every turn, and I'm hoping someone who's had the same problem will have the solution! The problem seems relatively mild, I have a porcupine puffer, Porky, who's not very old (I'd say ~1 year), still small for...

    Hi all! I've lurked around here for a while, and your experience has really helped me maintain my tank and keep my fish happy and healthy! I've kept aquariums since I was very little, but didn't ever set up a real salt tank until I moved into my college's dorm this year. It's been kind of a wild...

    Hello and thank you in advance for your help! Does anyone know what this is or what can be done to help him heal? We love our puffer man so much and are perplexed as to his malady that has been developing over the past 10 days. It is a white area on his head. It is not raised, not cotton, but...

    Hi. I had two green spotted puffers. They were great, they were very friendly, very active and always seemed excited when I came in the room. I could feed them out of my hand and even pet one of them. They almost had the personality of a dog. about 2 months ago one somehow got stuck in the...

    Hey:-) so I have set up a brackish fish tank and was wanting some ideas on what to put in it. I really want a puffer (Figure 8 or green spotted) but I also wanted plants and/or snails and was wanting to know what kinds I should get. Also are there any fish that can go with puffers? Thanks:-)

    I have been thinking of keeping a puffer in my saltwater aquarium, but most of the saltwater puffers that are commonly sold (from what I can tell) get fairly large. So I have decided to try to convert a brackish water puffer to saltwater (one that would not be affected by this) since most of...
