Pea Puffers

1. I have a 10 gallon, was wondering if 1 male and 2 female pea puffers would work at all, or is that to much?
2. I want a biotope and was wondering if anyone has any know plants, and if there are native floating plants to the Indian rivers
3. I want to know what substrate I could use
4. Can they breed in captivity, and is it worth it to re-send people F1 puffers?

I never drink water because of the disgusting things that fish do in it.

1) Absolutely

2) Hygros, Crypts, Anubias, Java Ferns, Java Moss, Rotala, Blyxa (high light), Aponogeton, Eleocharis, Salvinia Minima (floating)

3) Anything, sand is great for the snails.

4) Yes but the fry are highly cannibalistic so you have to be careful and separate them out if you want to keep some alive.

Anything, you can make DIY breeder nets or use breeder box/nets. I'm sure you can google to see how others do it.

Are you doing a dry start or did you just empty the tank?
