Porcupine Puffer

(5 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

    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!

    Bright eyed, healthy specimen arrived with no issues. Eating well and exploring the tank. Will definitely order again, unbeatable!
