Product Description

The Stars n’ Stripes Pufferfish is named for it’s unusual markings of stripes over the top of the body and the spots on it’s underside making a very striking and attractive pattern.

This animal is best suited for a non-reef environment as it will eat crustaceans, corals and other invertebrate life. Will eventually become the aquarium favorite as it learns to charm you into feeding it a treat. 

When frightened or distressed, Pufferfish can inflate over two times it’s original size. Purposely enticing this behavior will eventually cause illness and even death.

Provide plenty of live rock to keep teeth worn down or be sure to trim teeth as needed.

Though shy and refusing food on initial introduction, it will become bold, if not spoiled. Eventually it will beg for food just as well as any dog asking for table scraps. 

Feed a varied diet consisting of large chunks of meaty foods.

These foods include krill, raw table shrimp, squid, clam and mussel. It is also a good idea to occasionally supplement with some type of herbivore diet.

The white-spotted puffer (Arothron hispidus) is a medium to large-sized puffer fish, it can reach 50 cm length.[2] It is light grey in color, or greyish or yellowish, and clearly covered with more or less regular white points, that become concentric contrasting white and dark grey lines that radiate around the eyes and pectoral fins. The ventral part is white. The "shoulder" (around the pectoral fins) is dark. It also has concentric contrasting white and dark grey lines that radiate around the eyes and pectoral fins.
