$24.99$39.99

A true freshwater pufferfish found throughout the entire Amazon Basin, the Amazon Puffer is a small growing and relatively peaceful species that usually inhabits shallow water habitat. In the aquarium, they are one of the few puffer species which will thrive in groups, and they are generally safe with similarly-sized, fast moving tankmates. Amazon Puffers are primarily carnivores but will usually accept a wide variety of frozen and freeze dried foods.
