nice puffer but here are some tips. you figure eight needs to be in a brackish tank with a salinity level of about 1.005 for a long healthy life and there minimum tank size for one of these cool guys is 15 gallons. visit for more info. im pufferfreak on that website.

Nice puff!!!!

nice puffer!
with a bio wheel set up, he should be fine for a bit, I wouldn't keep him with a cory though, they don't like salt! My F8 is in with my bumble bees and a pair of endlers that do a great job of keeping them in live fry. I am a puffer fan, they are so fun to watch! Heres a vote for your rad lil dude!

Very nice looking fish!

I totally dig the Figure Eight Puffer, but they are very rare in South Africa. Perhaps one day I'd try brackish water fish.
Thanks for the visit.

He is almost adult size, I can see how you would be concerned, yes it is brackish, I am sorry I don't have a bigger tank at the moment, he is territorial and Semi-Agressive as you know, I tries to house him with my 1cm long Cory, not sure what kind know but doing research. I am trying to get a 55 Gallon pretty soon.

Beautiful F8. The name has puffers so how many do you have? These fish will get about 2.5 to 3 inches and your tank is way too small for even one of them.

If this is 3 gallons
That puffer needs to be in at least 20 gallons of water you have in 3 gallons that is sad. and is that a brackish tank they are brackish fish.
