Puffers are possibly the only fish that pull me towards the salty side of this hobby. Good find, cant wait to see him all grown up.

Its tempting to try dwarfs in a 5 or 10gal. Very tempting.

I wrote a profile on those little guys in the "Oddballs" forum. I think 5g is too small, but 10g is good.

My absolute favorite kind of puffer. Some day I will have one. There was one for adoption on CL just a couple months ago, here!

I was watching the video and I was all like, "Where's the puffer?" Then he showed up! He's so cute :)

He's adorable! I never knew puffers could get that big; how big do you expect him to get?

Just a side note fahakas aren't even the biggest freshwater puffer out thete. Mbus get around 3 feet long under proper conditions. I'm super jealous though. I want a fahaka so bad. I love them. I see them a lot lately and always want to brig one home since the babies are super cheap but I know i can't set up a 120 anytime in the near future.
