    I can't keep any right now, still organising my fish. I reckon 2 or 3 in a 2 foot tank would be awesome though.

    LOL!! Infestation!! You seriously need some puffers. Or sell 'em to a pet shop, or just give them away.
    Looks like they really love their garlic, kewl way to trap them, little gluttons! :gun2:
