Default 15 gallon tall tank

Hey everyone I just bought a tall tank and put a 50 gallon filter on it and planted it many live plants. I was seeing about getting a dwarf puffer fish for the tank and just keep him or place one male and one female in the tank. The only puffer I can find is one that grows to 6 inches and needs very little salt, but look exactly like the dwarf puffers that need no salt, so what should I do?

I did some research like I always do, but am seeing what my other options are of placing.something other then a puffer in that tank by itself. I love fish with personality like the bichirs and African leaf fish. Any suggestions please Im ready to add a fish already.

Thanks Chris

I wouldn't advise keeping a puffer that grows to 6 inches long in a 15 gal. Especially a tall one. Maybe try something smaller.

I know not to get that one, the dwarf puffers only get to 1 inch in size but can't find them anywhere. You got any other suggestions of fish I can put in that or intelligent and oddball?

go to aquabid, you should be able to find some dwarf puffers there. Also you can try the Puffer Forum (pufferforum.com I believe) but their site has had some problems. It has a "puffer-pedia" where you can learn about all kinds of puffers that might suit your needs.

Default Try this site.

http://www.aquariumfish.net/catalog_..._fish.htm#top2

They have dwarf puffers for sale on this site. I haven't ordered from them specifically, but I've heard they're pretty good. They're California based and respond very quickly to any email questions or concerns if you have any.

http://dwarfpuffers.com/forum/

This last site is a forum for people who love Dwarf Puffers. You may be able to find out where to get some locally or online from there too.

Hope this helps!
