This site will have information for trimming the teeth of a large Fahaka Pufferfish- Ollie. An 18 inch puffer will easily make a meal of any other small fish in the tank. May 26, 2019.

Although this has been mentioned already, this is so important that I though it was worth saying again. oh and for future refrence what types of food do they like? They will inhabit both freshwater and brackish waters of the river systems, but tend to do best in freshwater in the home aquarium. The Fahaka Puffer is a large species of freshwater puffer fish from Africa. 1 doll!!!!) Good luck and you'll be a happy owner of a beautiful puffer with lots of personality. The Fahaka puffer is not an easy species to breed at all, mainly due to its aggressive temperament. i will be getting him as soon as i can get a tank set up i have a 150g tank that is not in use and was planing on useing it to house the puffer. Ha ha ha ha. Please only comment if you own or have a lot of experience with a fahaka. This reference was TOTALLY our bible! Ideally a separate breeding aquarium should be used, but the fish may also spawn when kept in a small group in a very large tank. They are a robust species and are quite active. Hi, I know your post was awhile back but I’m glad you posted it. I wished they had more! They do best as the only fish in the tank. Pingback: Fahaka Puffer Tank Mates. It was too late.

Anyway thanks again for having the courage to post this since I know how many people out there just love attacking others online and putting them down. (adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); Cameron “the fish guy” is booked to come on Saturday, and our teen will put her iphone to good use recording the event. he is already about 8 inches so he has some room to grow i will keep everyone updated on my progress right now my lfs has him on hold for me! Also if you have a video of that whole aquarium I’d love to see it. I thought the case would be the same with the new Columbian Tetras…. I’m sure you probably know this by now since it’s been awhile but if he gets stressed and puffs out in the net, that will not be good lol. All of us in the hobby have made so many mistakes and as a result so many fish have died but as long as you learn your lesson and do different next time it all works out.

you can see that I was scribbeling math and liter conversions all over it.

All Aqua Huna brand animals come with a 100% live arrival guarantee, plus telephone, text, and email support! They should do fine with my Fahaka! I think, if I can muster up the strength to try this again, I will net the Fahaka and give the Colombian Tetras a few hours to acclimate. Scientific Name: Tetraodon lineatus. The Fahaka puffer is an extremely aggressive and large species of puffer fish. They are a completely freshwater species. Fish of the Month, Pet of the Month and more! I poured the fish in and the Fahaka started going after them. Found this thread, but it seems that every thing has already been said. strictly one to a tank and it is not advised to keep anything else with it. // ]]> So, I went to Petsmart on Black Friday and they had an awesome fish sale. They are schooling with the Buenos Aires Tetras and staying away from the Fahaka Puffer.

When it comes to Fahaka Puffer tank mates the pickings seem to be pretty slim. I've pulled many of his mates out. The Fahaka requires a very large aquarium with tank mates of similar size and disposition. If it's a true fahaka, the 55 gallon will be a good grow out tank. After that, every time I added new fish they started schooling with the old fish and everything was fine. Buckets are ready and waiting. we already have this, and a new diamond-tip thinnest possible blade on the dremel tool. Check out the Monthly Yikes! Cameron will bring the anesthesia. Care isn’t difficult at the condition that you provide the fish with proper tank environment and conditions. I wrestled with the idea of posting this for several hours because i’m a bit embarrassed, ….but I figured other aquarists can learn from my mistake so it’s the right thing to do. I think it will definitely help others and I’m glad you didn’t let being embarrassed get in the way of posting it. We had seen others using syringes to put behidn the puffers teeth, so got several sizes ready.

Hope your puffer is still with you. I ran to the other room for the net, but by the time I got back he had already nailed 5 more.

Looking forward to the forums!

100% Live Guarantee! Ollie is only 2 1/2 years old and I hope he or she lives many many more years.

He was laying on the bottom of the tank, belly full, next to 2 dead / dying Columbians.

Bradley Moles. thanks again for all the great info. I should have had the insight to take necessary precautions. Take away: I should have isolated the Fahaka. That's 10 inches of growth in seven months. Would a black ghost knife or a fire eel potentially work with a fahaka?

It will eventually need a tank 125+ gallons to support such a massive fish.
