The Blue Spot Puffer (Canthigaster papua), also known as the Hawaiian Blue Puffer or Blue Spotted Sharpnose, hails from the Indo-Pacific region, preferring coral reefs and rocky areas. With a maximum size of 4 inches and a lifespan of up to 5 years, they require a minimum 50-gallon tank with stable conditions (pH 8.1-8.4, salinity 1.020-1.025, temperature 74-78°F), and lots of hiding spots. While semi-reef safe, they may nip at corals and invertebrates. Their diet consists of red algae, green algae, coralline algae, and carnivorous preparations. These puffers are not suitable for communal tanks due to territorial behavior and potential aggression, but can coexist with larger, peaceful species like Firefish Gobies, Royal Grammas, Orchid Dottybacks, Banggai Cardinalfish, and Lawnmower Blennies. Sourced from ethical suppliers like Saltwaterfish.com, they ensure healthy specimens for your aquarium, offering a rewarding addition to marine environments.



Compatible Tank Mates Include: Firefish Goby (Nemateleotris species), Royal Gramma (Gramma loreto), Orchid Dottyback (Pseudochromis fridmani), Banggai Cardinalfish (Pterapogon kauderni), and Lawnmower Blenny (Salarias fasciatus)
