Species Identification

Post by Empops124 »


There’s a beautiful puffer fish in my local fish shop, labelled as a scribbled dogface puffer.

Can anyone help identify the specific species? I want to learn more about their care requirements e.g. adult size before taking the plunge.

Thanks in advance!

Good thing you asked! I don't believe the tank size is correct. More like 600-1000g.
