Tetraodon lineatus (Nile Puffer, Fahaka Puffer)

A variable fish, but usually yellow-brown with a series of oblique bands running upwards from the pectoral fin towards the region between the dorsal fin and the tail fin.


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

Although a hardy fish, this is not an easy fish to care for. It grows fairly rapidly, and needs a very big aquarium with excellent filtration. Social behaviour is remarkably variable, with some species being docile enough to mix with sturdy cichlids and catfish, but most are more or less intolerant of tankmates and have to be kept alone. Some will attack even their keepers!
