Arothron multilineatus (multilined puffer)

Post by Tonysi » Sun Nov 20, 2016 6:43 pm

I actually got to see one today a country critters in patchogue, I didn't take any pics of it but a google search on-ridiculously rare multilined pufferfish will come up with an article on the exact fish that they have. It was a pretty fish but strangely does kind of have a hybrid look to it. Reminds me of A. Reticularis x A. Stellatus. I was kind of curious on what the price tag on such a fish would be but didn't ask, anyways doesn't matter cause it was sold according to the article to an aquarist with a very large tank. So anyways what are your thoughts?.. New species or a hybrid?

Give a man a fish, and he'll eat for a day. Give a fish a man, and he'll eat for weeks.
