This package is for x10 Figure Eight Puffers. Puffers are approx 1"  - 2" Each.
The figure 8 puffer (Tetraodon biocellatus) is the perfect puffer for beginner brackish pufferkeepers. It is one of the most colorful of the puffer species, keeping its beautiful markings into adulthood. The figure 8 puffer is friendly, personable and entertaining. And it stays small enough to keep a single specimen in a 15-gallon aquarium.
The first rule to remember: larger is always better when it comes to aquariums for these puffers — remember, they like to swim! I recommend 10 gallons for every extra puffer you may want to add. Also, a longer tank will give them more swimming room than a tall tank. Individual specimens have proven to live longer and seem to have a better relationship with their keepers.

Green spot puffer feeds on snails, crustaceous and other spineless species as well as on plants. In the wild the fish lives in a brackish water.

Its juveniles spent their life in freshwater since they are born during the rains season, therefore the juveniles go through the water change from brackish to freshwater and then to saline water. Please, mention that it’s advisable to keep adult green spotted puffers in brackish water.

Tetraodon comes from Puffers family and it has quite a serious weapon to protect itself: strong jaws and 4 crushing teeth-like plates in its mouth instead of teeth.

The fish doesn’t have pelvic fins, however due to the strong pectoral fins Tetraodon is very manoeuvrable – it can swim backwards and hover over some place in the water.

Green spotted puffer fish size may be up to 15 cm and its lifespan is up to 10 years.

Tetraodons are famous for their ability to ‘puff up’ themselves with air or water if they see some signs of danger.

When the fish inflates its spines come outwards and this way tetraodon protects itself from being eaten. Green puffer as well as other tetraodons has some substances in its flesh which become poisonous if its enemy eats them.
