8g out of the original 3 puffers 1 survived. While in the states I got another which is bigger, he eats brine shrimp and snails but my smaller original one eats only snails. I really enjoy them. They have an oto in with them and a ghost shrimp. I'm thinking of adding red cherry shrimp o something.

2.5g, I need to add CO2 because this dwarf Hairgrass is not doing very well. If it doesn't work with DIY co2 ill probably be going with a S. Repens carpet? It's cycling.. I think it all be over soon. My new Betta is a beautiful EE Plakat. His body is turquoisish (lol ?) and has red fins with white/turquoise on the end. He's currently living in a bucket... I'm keeping up with water changes until it's all cycled.

Still missing Kiko

Planted tank shave taken a big part of my life. I'm planning an aquascape for a rimles I'll hopefully get soon. Hoping for the Mini M.
I'd love to get a dwarf puffer eventually. They're so cute, even if they seem to be picky eaters, lol. I bet that female betta is having the time of her life with 65gal to explore, even if she has to share! Your new plakat sounds beautiful. I'm still not ready to take the plunge into live plants beyond really easy ones like anubias and Marimo balls, but I love seeing other people's adventures with live plants.

I still miss my Rakki, too. I have a little female betta, Momo, living in his old tank, and I love her, but it doesn't make me stop missing him. Some bettas will always hold a special place in our hearts, and it sounds like Kiko is one of those special bettas.

I don't know much about dwarf puffers yet, although I really want to get one (or more) someday. If I understand correctly, it's pretty normal that puffers will only eat snails. Some can be trained to eat bloodworms, but most seem to prefer hunting and eating live food.

I'm hoping you'll post more pictures of your tanks and fish soon. I've enjoyed the ones you've posted so far.
Thank you so much! I'm glad you liked it. I have a lot to write, but I want to add pictures as well. I'm redoing my 65g soon and have upgraded a lot of things. I'll talk about it more in the new few days/weeks.

Once again thank you very much. Means a lot.

Julie7778 A lot has happened,

Kiko passed away from Dropsy. This was the hardest death. He was such an amazing fish, my first Betta. I will never ever forget him. I was going to set up his new tank as well, wish he made it to see it. Even my dad, was upset. He said he was the one fish death that really got to him.

S.I.P Kiko. Dont be too crazy.

On a more positive note. I got 3 dwarf puffers. One doesn't seem very healthy, assuming it'll die soon. They aren't eating anything. Except snails. I fed brine shrimp, bloodworms, nothing.
