Re: Pogo, My Abei puffer

I've watched him go through both sides of a live mussels shell(2 1/2" across 1/8" thick) like a hot knife through butter. Just a crack, pop, and done, leaving a perfect impression of his teeth. As for those cute little dog face puffers, a friend of mine got bitten on the thumb by one at a ...

When that didn't get me to stop looking at him, he showed me his pearly whites.

Just got home from work and this is how I'm greeted. Some of of the scratches on the glass are Pogo's handiwork!

Re: Are these abei or ...?

Could be really young, stressed out abei. Looks like turgidus, though. Mine will darken his spots and back when stressed or angry, but never the area in between the spots on his sides.

Re: One puff not enough, New Suvattii

So Im one of those people that believe pets should have names and yes, that includes fish. My hairy puffer has been so active and dog like, in behavior and looks, he got named Scruffy. But when it comes to the Suvattii... I have no clue. While my arrowhead is nowhere near as active as the hairy, it...

Re: Pogo, My Abei puffer

Behavior wise, he's lazy and malevolent. He spends most of his time laying in his favorite spot until I come around. Then he begs. If you've ever had experience with undulated triggers, you know what I deal with. No cords in the tank. Extremely cautious whenever hands are in or even near the water. ...

Re: Pao abei, aka T. abei, aka Abe's Puffer

I got really lucky with mine. I've only seen two in the few years since and they were special ordered. Shop owner said he'd been trying to get them for a customer for over a year.

Re: which puffer to go for...

I do find it odd that the hairy fellows don't burrow like all the other ambush predators. I read somewhere these guys inhabit rocky areas with a bit more flow than most of the lurkers. They may not have the opportunity or need to burrow in this type of habitat. They probably just blend right it wit...

Re: They arrived!! New Baileyi and Suvatti

Nice! I have been wanting a Baileyi for some time now. It would be a great contrast to my Abei.

Re: Pao abei, aka T. abei, aka Abe's Puffer

He's got some of the most amazing color changing abilities I've ever seen on a fish. These pics are his happy look. When he's angry his back is covered in darker reticulations and the spots on his sides turn almost black with just a pinpoint of orange in the center. It's also fast. Not quite as fast...
