I have been keeping dwarf puffers now for about a year in a 55g med. planted tank. I've been able to keep 7 out of 10 which from all that I've read.BUT! regardless of good upkeep there pretty short lived 2-3 years(also from what I've read). I've been able to select a mating pair and exclude them by dividing the tank 1/3. Within the last few days they've layed eggs in some moss surounding a rock. when they hatch I'm told they will only eat live food small enough for them , in wich I have no experience other than for pirahna. So if anybody has any advise on what I need and or where to look my fish and I will thank you!

I also just looked at the post from Cyradia about live cultures. Would these be good for carnivorous babies? And other than the internet would they be availible in store somewhere?

baby brine shrimp are an excellent food for any fry. You can buy eggs at most fish stores, and they are easy to hatch and feed.
