Re: is this a genuine tetradon pustulatus/cross river puffer

Looks good. Think this probably is one. Also try a forum search for this species. Lots of discussion in the past.

Re: Stunning Pao (Monotrete) abei shipment (2x)

Actually I might have to update my statement above. With the new pictures, your puffers fit the desription (diagnosis) of P. cochinchinensis quite well: "adults with ocellus, sometimes red, but most commonly made of a large black blotch surrounded by a paler area and a series of more or less contigu...

Re: Stunning Pao (Monotrete) abei shipment (2x)

The first three pictures of this thread look like P. turgidus to me, the last three could be P. abei and the remaining one is hard to identify, because the snout is not visible (but probably not abei). Here's an illustration that shows the typical two color patterns (depending on mood and breeding) ...

Re: puffer ID help please..

Certainly no Tetraodon duboisi. Probably Pao leiurus or a closely related Asian, long snouted target puffer species.

Re: Ocellated Puffer experience?

@Pufferpunk I don't think the op is looking for the Ocellated Puffer Takifugu ocellatus. I think it's about Leiodon cutcutia (formerly Tetraodon cutcutia), which also has been called ocellated puffer. A quick forum search for cutcutia shows 295 matching posts, some of them with personal experience, ...

Re: Puffer ID please

Probably L. cutcutia, which can have red lined fins and an ocellus. If you can get any better side pics, feel free to post them.

Re: MBU Puffer belly up

I'd carry on. When the cysts are excreted there hopefully might not be a next generation.

Re: MBU Puffer belly up

I'm not even sure there are nematodes in the sample. Can't see heads or intestines at all. They'd look like this: https://www.apsnet.org/edcenter/K-12/Te ... /step9.jpg Do they move?

The smallest C. irrubeco I have seen looked more like this: https://i.ytimg.com/vi/Pm4OGMf3HVg/mqdefault.jpg with a somewhat reticulated coloration of the darker lateral band just like the adult females.

Re: New to the world of puffers and online forums!

Probably no female C. lorteti oder female C. irrubesco in my opinion, also no C. imitator. More likely a C. travancoricus like this one: https://rybicky.net/obr/ryby/max/5372.jpg Give it some months to be sure.

Re: ID me asap please!

Both of these puffers have iridescent eyes. This is no characteristic of M. leiurus.

Yes, M. cochinchinensis stays around 3-4 inches as far as I know.

Fang's puffer M. cochinchinensis in my opinion.
