Fahaka Pufferfish - Tetraodon lineatus
The Fahaka Puffer is one the few full freshwater puffers in the fish keeping hobby.
They tend to be super aggressive care needs to taken when selecting tankmates.
Also known as the Nile Puffer or Band Puffer.
They can grow well over a foot in size.
Current size is just around 2.5" - 3” or so.
I was anything but a easy customer with my order. I changed it a couple times and all the sales people were extremely accommodating and helpful. they also took the necessary steps and actions to ensure the safety of the fish during shipment and potential cold weather. I will absolutely buy from them again.
I live in Omaha Nebraska, and I order my Fahaka puffer on Monday morning. It got to me in less than 24 hours. I was so nervous to order it, didn’t know how it would turn out. He small witch I knew it would be but he is swimming happily in his new home. Thank you guy! I will definitely be doing much more business with you guys.
Extremely sunk in stomach not leaving 1 star in hopes he is just starved and will get better
I ordered my fish on a Monday afternoon and my fish was delivered on the next morning. The baby fish was a bit shy at first but perked right up in a few minutes. The Fahaka soon started eating and nipping at tankmates. I could not be happier with this purchase.
I received my puffer and it is great it’s eating just fine and had no issue. I would recommend buying fish pet zone to anyone. Thank you.
Puffer was a little smaller than expected, but arrived healthy and happy. After about 4 hours of settling in under a plant, the little fahaka started exploring his new tank. After its third trip around the tank noticed a snail and went to town, after about three days the tank is snail free. Even though he's small, already has beautiful coloration and full of personality. Thank you petzone! After a year of trying to acquire this fish througha couple lfs and being let down, you guys safely shipped a beautiful fish and have earned a new very satisfied customer. I can't wait to make the drive from inland empire to see the store in person.
