Above: In this picture is a nice premium quality Freshwater Ocellated Puffer, swimming in one of our aquariums, when one of our crew members took this picture.
Comments: These are Puffers that we rarely see in the live fish stores or in the online stores that we visit.
Premium quality Puffers like these eels are more hardy and more colorful than Puffers from other sources.
Origin: This Pufferfish lives in both freshwater and brackish water in India, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Myanmar or the Malay archipelago, where it was collected by skillful collectors of wild fish.
So that now this Pufferfish lives in aquariums all over the world.
Maximum Size: In aquariums this Puffer can grow to be about 5.5" long, but they live many years and continue to grow slowly for their entire lives.
Behaviors: They can be aggressive toward other fish.
Compatibility: Some recommended tank mates include equally aggressive or fast swimming fish, or this species should be kept in a species only tank.
Small fish may be eaten by this Puffer, so be careful when selecting tankmates.
Temperature: This Puffer can live pretty well from about 70 to 80 degrees F., but they're probably most comfortable from about 75 to 78 degrees F.
