Need help with ID.

Post by lyy04012005 » Mon Aug 20, 2012 7:15 am

Recently bought a puffer for my son.
After going through many photos online and reading many articles, i am still unable to ID the puffer we bought.

Here are the photos. Hopefully i can have it ID-ed and give the puffer the requirments it needs.

Monotrete turgidus, freshwater. On the last picture the lower jaw looks infected, keep an eye on that.

It looks like a sticker was peeled off of the glass, I don't think there's actually anything wrong with the fish from what I'm seeing.
It is absurd to talk of one animal being higher than another. We consider those, when the cerebral structure/intellectual faculties most developed, as highest. A bee doubtless would when the instincts were.
