Since you’re here, I’m assuming you want to learn more about keeping freshwater puffers as pets – and there’s a lot to learn! In my opinion, they’re one of the most fascinating wet pets you can keep, from their highly variable personalities, to the cool eating habits they’ve adopted. Have you seen your puffer shoot water streams at the sand yet to uncover food??
So, who is That Fish Lady, anyway?
Well, I’ve been keeping freshwater and brackish fish since 2005, both professionally and as a hobby. I’m primarily interested in freshwater puffers, aquatic plants and catfish. However, I do enjoy the occasional large S. American cichlid as well (tank busters, anyone?)! We have fish tanks all over our house, and even a dedicated fish room just for the puffers.
My goal is to help other beginning aquarists benefit from my past mistakes rather than having to learn about them the hard way, alone.
In addition to the articles that I regularly post to the site, you can also read more about keeping puffers in the eBooks that I’ve written – they’re all instantly downloadable after you complete your payment through PayPal, and they cost less than the price of a puffer. If you’re here on my Freshwater Puffer site to find out more about Green Spotted Puffers, then you should definitely consider checking out my GSP guide because they aren’t actually freshwater puffers!
