Ugh, what part of "please hurry" did my folks not get?!?!

And now I just discovered one of the cats punctured the bag so the water and air is leaking out. D'oh! Really want to return him before I have to rebag him in fresh water.

The hems of my dresses would be way above a guinea's mouth. Unfortunately, they were not out of reach of the 30" tall rat cage, although I thought they were.

What size tank for these pea puffers? I'm extremely lazy and would rather not scroll back a page. I would recommend 20 gallons. Or they're likely to, y'know, bite each others faces off. Quite literally.

Diablo, hiya!

Here's an article:
Dwarf Puffers are Great Little Freshwater Fish

Got 3 of the little buggers.

Pea Puffer Trio.jpg

It's a Fluval Spec V, so 5 gal. I may have to use a sponge filter because the power filter puts out a strong current. I hope to redo the tank and plant it, since I read they like planted tanks. OR in a few months, relocate them and go with my original plan of turning that tank into a micro-reef with ricordea coral, a boxer crab, and maybe a shrimp goby. We'll see.

And those are the snails I want them to eat. o.O

I shall name them Mary, Edith, and Sybil even though I think the are actually all males.

EDIT: The white flecks that you can see on the tank bottom are the planaria that I can't get rid of. How I got such a bad planaria outbreak in a tank that previously had one male betta in it . . . (said betta is now floating in a cup in the tank because he doesn't look like he'll last much longer).

Aw guinea pigs!!

So I learned what a Nor'Easter is. And it's like -30C outside with the chill. Holy carp what a walk home.
And Sakura, you put the butter/margarine on the pads of kitty's feet!
