Pea puffers are just soooo cute! I have an 8g hex I'm thinking of using with a few puffers. Just have to have a good source of snails to keep them happy.

You should! I'd do one or two in there! They are ADORABLE!!! I just can't stop watching Joey. And I have a 1g bowl that I'm breeding snails in, and a 12g down stairs that I have a whole infestation to get rid of I don't think Joey will be starving anytime soon

At my LFS, it's called Aquarium Adventure. It's not the best quality or best price, but it does have the best selection!

I called my local PTC about whether or not they had dwarf puffers. Instead of giving me a yes or no answer, they ordered 3 for me with the next fish shipment.

When I showed up at the store, they were NOT dwarf puffers. They were large leopard puffers. 3"-4" and only about $4 or $5?. 2 had their tails chewed off by who else, the most aggressive puffer.

I was like these are not the pea sized dwarf puffers.

These would have killed everything in my tank.

@ktlelia: thanks! He's absolutely hilarious when he "hunts" his snails. Although I'm having a hard time finding out what he likes...

@MSG: that would be awful to experience! Getting your hopes up only to see the wrong fish. Hopefully you'll be able to find some

@gn3ranger: a 10g would be great for three of these little guys. They're so worth every bit of effort put into them! And what do you mean by "run me down"?
