Freshwater Pea Puffers

Product Description

Pea puffers are one of the most unique and rewarding nano fish to keep in your home aquarium. While they max out at an inch in size, they have a striking pattern and coloration that will draw instant attention. They have black patterns on a yellowish gold body that contrasts great against a variety of plants.

The small size of the pea puffer may make it seem like you can keep groups in a small tank and that is not always the case, pea puffers can be very aggressive toward each other so lots of plants or hiding places are recommended to prevent aggression. Groups of 3 or less are ideal for a 10 gallon but they can be kept by themselves with no problem. It is often recommended to not keep them in a community setting due to the chance of them nipping fins, instances of keeping otocinclus catfish with them without issues have been observed. We do not recommend keeping them with any type of shrimp.

The scientific name for the Pea Puffer is: Carinotetradon travancoricus

We feed our pea puffers a mix of frozen foods including daphnia, baby brine, cyclops, and Bloodworms. We occasionally feed them small Malaysian Trumpet Snails to enhance their diet.

Dwarf puffers

I recently purchased 5 puffers received 6 shipping and packaging was awsome. The reason forn3 stars instead of 5 is bc i suspect a couple or all of the puffers to have (IP) internal parasite. They are super tiny with sunken bellies not really eating or being active like my 4 other puffers i already had the size of them are a huge difference. The new ones kinda stay hidden in the back of the tank again not like like my others that stay at the glass beggin for food like a dog. Hopefully they all live and im wrong about the IP. But iv had puffers with the same symptoms befor. So just hoping for the best right now. Oh another thing im pretty sure flip aquatics medicate the fish befor sending them out which is pretty awsome and more places should do that.
