Dogface Puffer (Arothron nigropunctatus)
AKA Black Spotted Puffer
Suggested minimum aquarium size when adult:
Will eat frozen Mysis and Brineshrimp, larger fish will enjoy cockle, not usually keen on eating dried foods
No, will eat coral, crustaceans, molluscs etc.
Relatively peaceful, mixes well with fish of a similar size, rarely aggressive and rarely picked on by other fish. Small specimens may hide and feed poorly if kept in an aquarium with very busy fish.
When threatened can inflate with water, or air when being netted.
This is a library photo of a 5cm Dogface Puffer taken at The WaterZoo, exact appearance may differ due to natural variations and lighting conditions.
