Adorable fish. I like the look of the tank. I assume it's brackish, but looks like a saltwater? How difficult is it to keep a brackish tank? I would like to have one of those fish. They are so cute.

Just because animals can't talk, does not mean they should not be heard

Yes, he is in a brackish tank. However it will be saltwater one day, as they need marine conditions as adults.
It's not difficult, once you get the hang of it. It's a bit tricky to learn, though.

Thanks. :)
I have done a lot of research (and still am!); I want to learn as much as I can so that my little guy can have the best home possible!
I always thoroughly research new pets...it's best to be well informed, I think.

Thanks for sharing. He is so adorable. It looks like he has a nice setup and looks so healthy. They act like puppies don't they..

it sounds much harder than it is plus in my opinion its good practice for full salt because its less of a challenge but helps you learn to keep the salt levels right

Haha, yes, they definitely do act like puppies! I think it's safe to say that I'm officially hooked on puffers.
