Tetraodon mbu (Giant Puffer, Mbu Puffer)

The largest freshwater pufferfish. Can grow to around 60cm in aquarium conditions and therefore a fish that is not for the beginner. A large aquarium will be required with plenty of filtration.

Fish information (behaviour and breeding):

An amazing looking fish, but beware they do get very large. Only buy one of these fish if you know that you will be able to accomodate them as they get larger.

Diet should include bloodworm, brineshrimp, cockles, mussels and snails.

The temperament of these fish can vary although in the main they tend to be quite peaceful.

If you have the tank space this is an impressive fish to keep.

There are no reports of these fish having been bred in captivity.
