I just got a free ten gallon hex tank. I really really want a dwarf puffer. I've been reading up on them for the last week, I just want to know if there's something I've missed.
The set up is a ten gallon hex tank, Magnum 220 (220 GPH yea I know, way over kill, but it's what I have), a heater I forget the name of, and I'm thinking about an UGF. I have the set up for it, and the air pump, but I've never had one before. I'm hoping to plant the tank, but can I even use the UGF with plants? I'd rather plant the tank than use the UGF. I like flourite, and if I can find that in black, I'd love to use that. The water out of the tap is something like 7.3 pH. I'll be cycling the tank using a few guppies from my 20 gallon. I was thinking about adding a few neons, but I haven't read about neon's being DP safe, so I guess not. Maybe some otto's, but I've never had much luck with them.
Is there anything I need to change? Anything I need to add? Thanks!
