    Wrong forum... moving this to Fish Keeping.
    Vincent - AQ is for everyone, but not for 'u' and 'mi'.
    Why use punctuation? See what a difference it makes:
    A woman, without her man, is nothing.
    A woman: without her, man is nothing.

    puffer fish are noctorious for fin nipping....if you must have to control snails, pick the smallest one you can find and only one puffer.

    Not true. I saw figure 8 puffers tearing a swordtail apart at a LFS. I guess the shop keeper has introduce the swordtail to feed them. Vicious! But I guess those puffers are super hungry.

    Dwarf puffers by far cause the least damage. But the fin nipping habit is their nature. I have one in my tank. All my cherry barbs ended up with broken tails.

    Beware, if you keep puffers, be prepared to feed them live food. They do not take anything else. Ocassionally, you find one that eat frozen worms, but don't bet on it.

    It took THREE bloodly months for my dwarf to accept frozen. Almost given up on them. They are so fussy!!!!

    Training:

    Live worms - once a week
    Frozen - alternate days. juz drop a few in the tank to show them that it is food. Take it or leave it!

    Better choose one that's REALLY small... or the other fishes will end up as food!
