Lil Huey, the Dwarf Puffer

I know you guys never get to see pics of Huey but in his new tank he's not as skittish. I don't know why? He's an oddball. Today he was a good subject. Anyway, here's Huey the Dwarf Puffer:

Hai!




Nomming a bloodworm!


Is that a camera?

5 gallon minimum! Must live alone. Lots and lots of plants, real or silk. I got mine at Petco. I love Huey an his iridescent eyeballs!

Thanks Jackie! I'm hoping they stay in good shape with no snails.

nel3, that is the weirdest thing ever.

Freshwater. They prefer snails but mine also eats frozen bloodworms. He used to eat frozen mysis shrimp too but stopped liking them. Sometimes people have trouble getting them on bloodworms. Huey was no trouble. I keep pond snails in my other tanks and I try to give them to him twice a week.

Maybe I could use Diablo's five gallon after he passes, which hopefully won't be for a long time. So cute though...
