This immaculate puffer will attain a length of 11 inches. In its natural
environment, this fish can be found on sand flats, sand flats and muddy
estuaries.This fish is a wonderful addition to the FOWLR system.
Provide caves and crevices for the puffer to retreat to.This fish can be
added to a tank that contains less aggressive triggers, puffers,
groupers and wrasse.The family of Puffers is a distinct family marked by
their ability to ingest water into the ventral portion of their body
causing them to blow up for protection. These fish also have incredibly
strong plated mouth structures that are used to bite and crush even the
toughest shells.Almost all puffers are slow swimming fishes with
powerful jaws made up of fused teeth feeding on a variety of slow moving
and often hard animals. Also have a poison in their skin, tissues and
organs. The poison is an alkaloid nerve poison.They will do well in a
fish-only aquarium. Keep only one per tank.Puffers have bodies that are
very rounded and often tapered at the mouth and caudal (tail) fin
regions. Color varies, but many species have light spots and or
spines.Feeds mainly on mollusks (hard, powerful teeth enable them to
break through mollusk shells); also fed on other invertebrates including
sponges and coral.
