Food and feeding

This puffer will relish all shelled sea foods alongside treats of blood worms and other live or frozen foods. It is important to keep the shells on some of the food to keep the teeth trimmed back. As Humpback puffers are not a very active fish they should only be fed every other day.

Origin

Asia; Humpback puffers are found in Thailand, Laos, Malaysia and Indonesia.

Sexing

There are no visible differences between the sexes.

Breeding

Humpback puffers are cave spawners and the male will dig out a pit inside the cave for the eggs. Once the eggs have been fertilised, the male will guard the nest until they hatch. Now is the time to remove the parents, the fry are ready to take newly hatched brine shrimp and blood worm as soon as they are free swimming.

Lifespan

The expected life span for Tetraodon palembangensis is 10-15 years.

Short description

It is better to keep Tetraodon palembangensis as a single specimen due to their aggressiveness. A group can be kept if the tank is large enough and there is plenty of cover in there to create the territories.
