The Baby Dogface is not very aggressive and features big expressive eyes and a pouty little mouth. The Baby Dogface is also considered reef safe with caution because it may devours the species of invertebrates and will eat snails, sea urchins, crustaceans and usually don?t cause any damage to corals. It should be kept in a tank not less than 35 gallons, and with its unique physiology, it makes a captivating addition to any tank. The Baby dogface pufferfish does well in an aquarium with moderately aggressive aquarium inhabitants e.g., angelfish and surgeonfish. The Baby Dogface thrives well in a temperature range of 74-80 degrees Fahrenheit, and pH of 8.1-8.4. It is sometimes very hard to feed, and if it is present in bad quality water it may feel stressed and insecure. The Baby Dogface can be kept on a diet of shrimp, squid, marine fish, clams, crabs and other meaty marine food. Like other puffer fishes, this fish also inflates its body to twice its normal size to protect itself from ingestion from predators. It should be provided with several cervices to retreat to or to slumber in at night. Be sure not to expose the Baby Dogface to air, since it may ingest air and expelling it can be difficult. That is why if you wish to transfer this fish from one aquarium to another, always use a container instead of a net. Feed your Baby Dogface some food laced with the drug fenbendazole, which will have to be acquired from your vet to preclude the fish from having internal parasites.
