dwarf puffer goes postal
just a cautionary tale for anyone thinking of mixing dps and other fish
i awoke yesterday moring to find two of my 3 dps dead (both female)i stuck to the filter intake the other wedged between two rocks while fetching my net to carry out the standard burial at sea i watched the remining puffer repeatedly attack both now dead puffers violently
removing the corpses i left him with a group of anamos and a bristlenose the tanks other residents, when i fed the fish in the evening i found 3 shrimp dead and the single dp was pressing home his attack on the pleco
he now has a 15g tank to himself the pleco and surving shrimp moved elsewere this is my oldest puffer
ive kept dps for a while now and ive never had any go on a killing spree after a lifetime of moterate behaviour as for him he will be getting his own individual quaters im not risking young puffers with him
