Pao palembangensis (Humpback Puffer, True Palembang Pufferfish)
A fairly large pufferfish with a distinctive crooked back. Overall colour is mottled brown, paler below, and with a red eye.
For many years, the name Tetraodon palembangensis was used to describe the figure-8 puffer. Many aquarium books still contain this error. The "true" Tetraodon palembangensis is a freshwater fish, not a brackish water one, and looks completely different.
Fish information (behaviour and breeding):
Fairly aggressive and territorial, this fish is best kept alone, though some aquarists have succeeding in keeping armoured catfish alongside them.
Has been bred in home aquaria. The male guards the eggs.

|Distribution||Laos, Thailand, and Indonesia|
