Malabar Dwarf Puffer - Carinotetraodon travancoricus

The Pea Puffer aka Pygmy Pufferfish 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.

    Arrived Alive

    Posted by Stephen Scheidig on 24th Jun 2020

    Fish arrived alive but I recommend adding some sort of ice pack to the packaging. Water temp in the bag was near 95 degrees as it was shipped in the summer from CA to FL. On a positive note, all fish recovered after acclimation (water drip method) began eating snails in the tank within hours, and fully adapted to their new home and began eating red worms the next day. They are happy and healthy, but please add a freeze brick or something to the foam box to keep the water temp a little lower during summer shipping.

    I love my pea puffer

    Posted by Charlie B. on 31st May 2020

    My pea puffer, Io, has been doing great for the past couple of months. She eats live blackworms, which I was also able to get from Petzone, and thank goodness because puffers are so picky about food. She is plump and healthy.

    Beautiful fish, arrived healthy.
    Only complaint was customer service as I had sent a few e-mails to cancel the order.
