MBU or fahaka??

Post by Puffiness » Wed Feb 04, 2015 1:11 am

Hello! Tank is up and ready to! The only thing missing is the star of the show which will be a puffer, I'm planning a fahaka at the moment, but what's the difference between MbU puffer and fahaka puffers besides MbU growing bigger than the Fahaka?? Any comments or which one would be better?

The fahaka is more aggressive, the mbu gets much bigger. A monstrous tank is needed to house a mbu
It's amazing how easy maintenance is. If done regularly and thoroughly

You should be able to check your lfs if you have one. I bought mine for 14 bucks I think. He was about 3/4". Well worth it my favorite fish to date.
