Figure 8 Puffer - Tetraodon biocellatus

The Figure 8 Puffer is one of the most active puffers in the hobby.  This brackish water fish doesn't get too big (max size is about 3 inches).

Their puppy-like antics makes them desirable.  But caution needs to be taken for tank mates as they can get quite aggressive.

Size is about 1.5 inches.

    5 star arrival, 2 star health

    Posted by Alex on 7th Jan 2021

    I ordered two Figure 8 puffers.
    The good: Shipping went smoothly and I was thrilled to see that the heat pack was still warm. Both arrived alive and readily ate after acclimation. They also swiftly fixed my developing snail problem (my tank is heavily planted).

    The bad: one was missing a dorsal fin and I suspect has ick. Also, the other appears to have some sort of eye infection which developed within the span of 24 hours. This has led me to begin the long process of medicating both of the fish.

    I’m not really all too bothered by the infections (suspected) considering that the puffers are generally wild caught. I’m dissatisfied with receiving a puffer with a missing a dorsal fin.

    Figure 8 Puffer

    My fish came in being pretty active and looking generally healthy. The body is around an inch and a half long, wasn't emaciated as I was concerned that it would be. I would definitely order from Pet Zone again!

    Figure 8 puffer

    Posted by Kari M on 3rd Dec 2020

    Two of the three puffers arrived healthy and in good shape. One had fin damage, and I'm not sure if it will make it. Customer service said the fish were kept at 1.008 salinity, but when I treated the bags they arrived in it was 1.001. on the bright side each fish was shipped in it's own bag and the healthy ones are super active.

    Everything I Hoped For

    Posted by Kayla Peyton on 3rd Dec 2020

    First, it is very difficult to not only find these Figure 8s in stock at most places, but its even more difficult to find them in existing brackish conditions. Despite them being brackish fish, most stores keep them in fresh water which was very frustrating to me as I already have a brackish tank. THEN, I found PetZone. I emailed them with questions about the salt levels in their holding tanks and I received prompt and friendly responses answering all my questions. Shipping was quick and well done; nicely packed with a warmer in an insulated box, and it shipped Monday and was to my door by 1:30PM the next day. They are active, colorful, adorable and incredibly healthy. Everything I wanted! Thank you so much PetZone for answering your customer's questions, you gave me the confidence to purchase these knowing they're coming from a good home! Will definitely order more from them.
