Can Golden Dwarf Puffers be kept with Bumble Bee Gobies?
Dwarf Puffers are definitely not community fish and are best kept in a small species setup. Some people do keep them in larger community tanks with success, but it is not recommended. Dwarves are vicious little critters and will nip the fins off just about any other fish. They are capable of killing tank mates much larger than themselves with their relentless picking and nipping. Also, their small size can cause them to be eaten by larger fish. If you’re going to keep dwarves, plan to provide them with their very own tank. There are a few tank mates that can be successfully kept with dwarves, though, and are worth mentioning, Otocinclus and Amino Shrimp, Ghost shrimp will make an excellent “cleanup crew” for your puffer tank.
