Tetraodon baileyi Tetraodon baileyi

(05.Feb.2008) At present we can offer Tetraodon baileyi in an outstanding constitution and by pair! Please note that the females do not show any fluffs. The cute appearance of T.baileyi, originates from the Mekong river system in Indochina, should however not hide their predatory character, since they can “clear up” in a “community aquarium” enormously. They are disguised as pebbles overgrown with algae and hide on the bottom waiting for prey to come closer and even nibble on the puffer’s tentacles. But then it is already too late and the unsuspecting victim becomes a meal.They are evenly somewhat special for aficionados of unusual aquarium fish. Also their family life is rather rustic, as nicely as they pose here, they will not often behave in the aquarium.(Photo F. Schäfer, Text K. Diehl)
