Malabar Dwarf Puffer - Carinotetraodon travancoricus

Ths is one of the smallest of the pufferfish family and are more ideal as they can live in full freshwater in comparison to others that require brackish water condition.  
They are a bit more shy compared to other larger puffers due to their smaller size as they are prey in the wild to other larger fish.  Also known as the Pea Pufferfish due to their super small size.

Despite their small size, they can be quite aggressive to even fish larger than them.  They can get territorial so it is best to keep them with larger peaceful and hardy fish.

    They arrived in great health and full of energy. They ate immediately and are now doing well in their tank!

    My package came triple bagged, in two boxes. These guys really took care of my fish. Fish were all healthy and I haven’t had any problems with them yet! Would definitely recommend.

    Wonderful little fish!

    These little fish are just the cutest things and I've found them easy to take care of! They were not shy from the get go, and are constantly looking at me because they want food! I walk in the room and they all scurry up to the front of the tank! Those little faces are hard to resist, but I'm not giving in! The only squabbling I've seen has been over blood worms! They look so comical with the big eyes and their cute faces! Plus, they are just so little and have big personalities! Thank you! I'm really enjoying them!

    dwarf puffet fish

    Posted by andrea on 23rd Jun 2017

    I love these little guys. I ordered three online. They were all overnighted through FedEx. Petzones contacted me regarding changing my shipping from USPS priority to overnight bec they said they cannot guarantee the puffers will not arrive doa for a three day shipping. They were very nice and wanted to make sure that I was okay to USPS priority. I then changed to overnight FedEx. I paid $26 for overnight. The puffers came early in the morning. I lost one puffer that day. I'm left with two active ones. So sad the third one died. I would order again from them.
