Not Reef Safe

The Dog Face Puffer, with its endearing appearance and distinctive markings, is a charismatic but challenging addition to marine aquariums. Featuring a round, bulbous body and a puppy-like face, this fish is popular among aquarists for its unique personality. However, it is not reef safe and can be aggressive towards other tank mates, particularly smaller fish and invertebrates. Additionally, its powerful jaws are capable of crushing shells and causing damage to corals and other tank decorations. Therefore, it is best suited for fish-only tanks with large swimming space and robust tank mates. Providing ample hiding spots and appropriate tank decorations can help alleviate stress and aggression. With its adorable appearance and engaging behavior, the Dog Face Puffer makes a captivating centerpiece in marine aquariums, but it requires careful consideration and management due to its aggressive tendencies.

These fish are for saltwater aquariums only.
