I want a major in agriculture and a minor in the study of fish. I hope to get a job in aquaculture.

It is not healthy for dwarf puffers to puff much, it can kill them. People seem to say they are like little dogs. They even sometimes like human attention.

I have been researching them for a while cus I am interesting in setting up my 5g Eclipse hex tank for one at some point. I can't wait to get one! :)

I dont think dwarf Indian puffers puff. You can only get one in there. You should put pond snails in there as food.

Dwarf puffer can puff up, but it is not healthy, as it is a sign of stress, so unless they are really stressed I am sure it is rare for them to do so.

I do know they enjoy snails to suck up and eat. Thank you for making sure I know that. :)

That's cool, Choc. I was thinking of those jobs monitoring slaughter houses or imported livestock. But I'd rather work with wild animals. Of course I'm still totally confused. But definitely taking ornithology classes. xD

Working at fish farms that raise fish to help wild populations would be fun. My dream is to breed tuna I know that has never been done. I heard the secret to getting them to breed the main problem is raising the fry. My idea is using ocean water.
