Since you’re here, I’m assuming you want to learn more about keeping
green spotted puffers as pets – and there’s a lot to learn! In my opinion, puffers are one of the most fascinating wet pets you can keep, from their highly variable personalities, to the cool eating habits they’ve adopted. Have you seen your puffer shoot water streams at the sand yet to uncover food??
I’ve been keeping freshwater and brackish fish for quite a while now, and like many other people, the first encounter I had with a green spotted puffer didn’t end well (If you’d like to know the full story of Helicopter Tank Puppy, feel free to email me!). That experience left me very upset, and I’ve been trying to help people learn how to correctly keep Tetraodon nigroviridis ever since then.
