Sphoeroides annulatus

29. September 2015

A very interesting species of pufferfish reached us currently from Colombia: Sphoeroides annulatus. This species is primary a seawater fish, but juveniles are often found in pure freshwater. However, we recommend to keep the species in brackish water. This beautiful puffer can reach a maximum length of 40 cm. Most specimens are peaceful, but one should always keep in mind that puffers in general have an individual temper. Sadly every now and then even among peaceful species single specimens exist that love to bite in the fins of their tankmates.

For our customers: the fish have code 293702 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
