Dog Face Puffer
The Dog Face Puffer leaves little to the imagination in regards to understanding how it received its name. Looking remarkably like a dog, this puffer has one of the most noticeable and unique personalities of all marine fish. This fish does alter in colouration, however its most common form is a grey body with black spots and markings, and yellow fins and markings around the mouth.
When this puffer is in its natural environment it is almost always discovered within reefs and mangrove swamps. In order to home this messy eater comfortably, a 500 litre aquarium is required at an absolute minimum. Additionally, the system to this aquarium will need to have a effective protein skimmer and filtration. Furthermore, this fish will not be suitable for those reef tanks as it is known to nip at corals and clean up crew members.
It is also a wise decision to create a variety of caves and overhangs within your rock word when deciding to add this fish, as it will commonly be found hiding in a cave or sitting on a rock or overhang.
This puffer has to be offered a broad diet, including a range of meaty foods , such as clams, squid, prawns, and hard shellfish to help grind down their continuously growing teeth.
