Photo Of The Week - Blue White Spotted pufferfish (Arothron meleagris)
The alluring and majestic Blue White Spotted pufferfish is a very personable fish that with the right care it can be an excellent fish for hobbyists with large aquariums. This puffer can grow up to 20 inches, thus it needs to be housed in an aquarium of 100 gallons or larger. It is a somewhat peaceful fish that can live with other fish as long as they are of the same size and temperament. This is not a reef safe fish for in the wild it is a predator that feeds on coral branches and other crustaceans. To maintain it in optimal health feed it a variety of meaty frozen foods.
