Porcupine Puffer

(7 customer reviews)


SKU: SKU-129 Category:


Porcupine puffers, Diodon holocanthus, also called Balloonfish, are odd little puffers that make great pets. They start at about 3 inches long which is a great size for most aquariums. Puffers are not agressive toward most other fish, but they can and will eat shrimp, crabs, and clams in your tank, so these are probably best for fish only tanks. We recommend to only keep one in your tank.

Small:  2 to 4 inches

Medium:  >4 to 5 inches

Large: >5 to 7 inches

They are the perfect care takers for these Awesome creatures! THIS is just one of the reasons why I will Only purchase from these People!
    My son has had the same salt water aquarium for over 20 years. He’s had a love for them since he was 10 years old! Anyway, this was the first time for me buying something like this, he always does his own buying of new salt water fish & supplies. But this year I asked him what gift I could give to him and without hesitation, he told me. So, I purchased 100 Blue Leg Hermit Crabs for My Sons Birthday on 9/6. Because Labor Day was Monday, I placed my order for them on Tuesday morning. I didn’t really understand the ordering process, btw, my own fault! LOL! But he wouldn’t have received them until a week later. Not knowing the process I sent an email to KP Aquatics and asked them for a tracking number, so I could check about when they might be delivered.(since early morning, my son had spent most of his birthday, anxiously waiting on the Hermit crabs to be delivered!) Very soon after sending them an email I received a phone call from them explaining their shipping process. Even though, it was MY OWN MISTAKE, the Owner I spoke to was determined to make right MY MISTAKE!!! He was So very understanding and kind! He fixed everything for me and shipped out the beautiful Blue leg hermit crabs to my son that day! This morning, he revived his package! They were packed with the most care and protection !!! Each one Alive, Perfect and Healthy ! Not ONE empty shell, or perished little one!! I’m sure if you’re reading this review, I don’t need to tell you all how happy these Creatures make you, well, that’s how my son feels! Those little beings not only made my sons Birthday but renewed his faith that there are Still Good people out there that care about others!
    Thank You, from the bottom of my heart! This, was so much more than just about blue leg hermit crabs for my family, it was also about renewing our faith in others, that there are still people in this world who really do care about others.. It still amazes me, how even the smallest of kind gestures can make a big difference in another persons life. Hope, is a rare commodity these days, I’m grateful to see it’s not lost!
    Btw, I think these little Creatures are way too Cute!!!
    THANK YOU AGAIN SO MUCH ! Also, For the kind Happy Birthday Message to my Son! You’ve Gained some Very Loyal Customers in Us All!! 🥰

    My fish got delivered less than 24 hours after the order processed. I ordered a small porcupine puffer that was about 3” and is very healthy. It came in with no blemishes and was breathing normally. I initially wasn’t sure whether to trust the cheaper prices because other sites were charging up to $120 for the same fish, but I have no complaints and saved a lot of money.

    These fish are baby’s still n very weak at first n I’d recommend turning off as much current as you can besides your filter n turn off the lights for the first day theses ones are super sensitive n need to maintain there energy like a bulldog puppy short walks only don’t even look at them too much at first haha seriously give them space at first 🙂 hope this helps good luck

    What a beautiful fish ordered the medium size quite chunky and after a few days is quite the voracious eater full of personality just like the description says everything purchased from this store has been excellent to say the least no one compares thanks!
