Stars and Stripes Pufferfish for Sale

Scientific Name: Arothron hispidus 

Common Names:  Stars and Stripes Pufferfish, Whitespotted Pufferfish, Hispid Pufferfish

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.

The Stars and Stripes Pufferfish is a medium to large-sized puffer fish.  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.

This fish 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.  Intermediate care in needed for this fish and a minimum tank size is 70 gallons.

The Stars and Stripes is considered a semi-aggressive fish. When frightened or distressed, Pufferfish can inflate over two times its 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.

Size: 2.5-4.5 inches and matures to 20 inches in length 

Diet: 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. Eventually it will beg for food just as well as any dog asking for table scraps.
