Tetraodon suvattii (Mekong Puffer)

A fairly large pufferfish with a distinctive upturned snout, giving rise to an alternative common name, "pignose puffer". Overall colour is mottled brown, paler below.


Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

Generally too aggressive to keep with other species of fish, this puffer can sometimes get along with its own kind if kept in suitably spacious quarters.

Has been bred in home aquaria. The male guards the eggs.
