If you have never had a puffer fish before let me tell you a bit about them. I divide them into three categories, the beak kind, like the dogface and stars and stripes puffers with nasty looking bird like beaks and big chompers. The smile kind, like the porcupine and banded puffers of brackish water. If you’ve never seen a fish smile before then you need to see these beautiful creatures. The snout kind like the blue spot, valentini and false eye tobys that follow your finger on the glass and in the water like excited little puppy dogs.
It’s true not all puffers suit all tanks but you shouldn’t look past these interesting fish as they are some of my favourite things in the ocean.
