x20 Figure Eight Puffers

This package is for x20 Figure Eight Puffers. Puffers are approx 1 1/2 - 3" 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.

South American cichlids are attractive, active, are generally quite durable fish. They are found in a range of sizes and with some very beautiful coloration.
Their behaviors are very intriguing, and many interact with their keepers and their environment making them favorite aquarium fish for many hobbyists.
Cichlids are found around the globe, in the Americas, Africa and parts of Asia. The “type specimen” for the cichlid family is the South American cichlid Cichla ocellaris, commonly known as the Peacock Bass or Peacock Cichlid. Thus the American cichlids are sometimes referred to as the “true cichlids” though all species are actually true cichlids.
The South American Cichlids or New World Cichlids are those found primarily in Central and South America, with a number of species native to Mexico, and the Texas Cichlid found in the southern part of North America. The actual number of cichlid species is unknown but estimated at more than 2000, with at least 1300 species scientifically described. South American Cichlids and Central American Cichlids are estimated at about 570 species.
They are categorized as "secondary freshwater fish" - meaning their ancestors were marine fish. It is believed that cichlids moved to freshwaters from the marine environment, and they have features relating to a number of marine species including the damsels, wrasses, parrot fish, and surfperches. This helps to explain why many species can do well in salty water, and in fact some species extend their range into parts of the ocean.
