Tank Mates

Species Only tank recommended.

It's possible to keep with other fish and snails, but the setup has to be just right and you have to be lucky with a less aggressive puffer.

Notes

Aggressive and territorial.  Provides lots of ground cover and space when having multiple puffers in one tank. Try to have 1 male for every 2-3 females to avoid fighting. The larger the tank the better, especially a wide tank with dense planting and lots space to shelter.  Provide a minimum of 5 gallons for 1 puffer, add 3 more gallons for each additional puffer.
