Food and feeding

Striped red-eye puffers are quite easy to feed, they relish frozen blood worm and krill. The addition of some small pond snails will keep their teeth in check. When you first get them feed the fish first thing in the morning as they are mostly nocturnal until they get to know their keeper.

Origin

Asia; Striped red-eye puffers are found in Malaysia and Borneo.

Sexing

The males will display more colouration than the females and they will be larger. The females tend to be a mottled brown with a light belly.

Breeding

The male will display to the female for several days, when she is ready to spawn the eggs will be laid on the substrate. After this the female will be driven away from the spawning site and the male will take care of the brood. The eggs should hatch after 3days, another couple of days later; the fry should be free swimming. They can be fed on Infusoria initially and then newly hatched brine shrimp.

Lifespan

In captivity, the life span is unknown.

Short description
