Green PufferfishTetraodon nigroviridis
When young the Green Puffer can be kept with others of its kind but as the fish ages it will become intolerant of other puffers and likely to attack them. Like many puffers, they are liable to take bites out of other fish on occasion, although this usually occurs in confusion whilst feeding rather than deliberate attacks. The Green Puffer can be kept with other fish in a community, but its tankmates should be of a similar size and a robust nature such as larger barbs, or peaceful cichlids. Some salt should be added to the aquarium water. Not a beginners fish.
This fish is excluded from the Compatibility Checker as it is unsuitable for community aquariums or may require expert care.
