Yep 3!! They get along great and have such different personalities e.g. Little Charlie is very wary of me and not too keen to interact (though he's still very nosy when he thinks I'm not looking) whereas Little Paul is always interested in some attention. Pete is another thing altogether, he's always watching me and goes around the tank in a grump if he feels he's being ignored!

I miss having cichlids, maybe one day when I can afford a bigger tank I'll have them again :) I'd love to do a huge amazon biotype tank
I'd like a tank similar to this where it looks like roots


or if I become filthy rich lol




I finally got a decent photo of my Paradise fish flaring his gill covers, second photo he's flaring his pretty fins.



So are they like betta fish? Like, aggressiveness and etc

It depends very much on which variety you get. Green spotted puffers (GSP) like my 3 are not too bad but really shouldn't be kept with other fish which is why mine are in a species specific tank. Obviously each fish has their own personality too.

i should point out that in the puffer tank I have two rummy nosed tetras. I did a big tank swap round a few months ago as I felt that the puffers needed the slightly larger aquarium as their bioload is high (messy so-and-so's) I took all the community fish out of tank one except for these 2 tetras who simply refused to be caught. I then put the puffers in tank one and put the community into tank two.

I spent a further hour trying to catch the two remaining tetra but to no avail. I fully expected the puffers to kill them by the next morning but here we are 3 months later and they are living happily together. I believe that this is due to the tetras being in situ when I introduced the puffers so the puffers simply accept that they are part of the tank. I wouldn't dream of introducing small fish into their tank now as I'm absolutely positive the puffers would despatch them pretty sharpish!

Sorry about that, it's quite obvious when I look back! Duh!!

Anyway, puffers... They start off being freshwater but as they grow older they become brackish and then salt water. Apparently the fry are 'born' in rivers and then migrate to the ocean.
