"HELP!!! I am taking care of my sons biosphere 30 gal while he is at college. He comes home in intervals to do scheduled water changes so I don't have much experience other than feeding his cichlids and the adorable GSP. His 2nd old Puffer keeps jumping into the back of the biosphere where the pump and filters are. So far he has been unscathed however, I came home today to find him wedged by the pump and heater. After turning off the pump ,I was able to net him and get him back in the tank. To my horror ,it looks like he has a hernia by his side fin. It is not an open wound but I fear he might have suffered from excessive suction. I was pleased to find him actively swimming in normal control. He is eating normally. He just has that odd puffed out shape by his right side fin. Will it recede or is the little doomed? I am planning to get to the aquarium store in the morning to try to jury- rig a net across the back in hopes that it will prevent him from jumping into the back of the bio-sphere. Thanks in advance for whoever can offer info"
