    I read a lot of places that the puffers leave the oto catfish alone (plus otos are fast swimmers) and some people also have success with kuhli loaches. The puffers are super fun to watch, especially when they stalk their prey. I wouldn't recommend having them in a tank with like guppies or something with long flowy tails. It's been done, but you may come home to a tank of carnage and death one day (maybe that was a little dramatic lol).

    Crizz, they look so much better! Their stomachs are not all sunk in now. I'm glad everyone is doing so well and you're enjoying them.

    Well fed puffers will also help I think. I kept them in a 75 gallons community tank for couple months and then moved them to a 10 gallon tank. They couldn't compete food with other fishes because they like to stare at their food before eating them lol. After awhile there weren't any snails left in the tank for them to eat they started to nip at other fishes but they were fine for months before that.

    I also put a bunch of guppy fries in their 10 gallon tank (I know you like guppies, but I had too many of them at that time), and some guppies grew big now. Not sure if the guppies were too fast or if the puffers like worms more.

    Dang, what's with all the guppy hate lately? I'm glad to see some of them survived your sadistic plan, Dexter! Haha

    I'd be more than happy to come take those snails off your hands! These 4 have just about cleaned out the 20 gallon already.
