New Suvatti

Post by DDR2 » Mon Aug 05, 2019 3:14 am

Picked up a new potato. I've decided to call him Magua. He's about 3-3 1/2" and much more active than Pogo, my Abei puffer. As soon as he hit the bottom he started stalking a ghost shrimp. He's also eating nightcrawlers.

Sometimes he sits still for a few minutes and changes colors or orientation to blend. Sometimes he comes to the front to beg. The rest of the time he's like a little hovercraft of death. Prowling and stalking.

i think having now kept a number of different puffers for a number of years, i can safely say that 'suvattis' are my fave of the 'ambush predator' puffers. They seem a lot more interactive than the humpback/twin spots/hairys in my experience, but i guess that varies fish to fish..

I love mine, but she never moves.
