Photo Of The Week - Blue and Gold Transitional Arothron Pufferfish (Arothron meleagris)
Feast your eyes on the Blue and Gold Transitional Arothron Pufferfish (Arothron meleagris). This pufferfish is mesmerizing in color patterns and size. Thus, making it one cool looking pufferfish. It currently measures about 7 inches in length, but like other Arothron meleagris, when the right care is given, it can grow up to 20 inches. Hence, we recommend this personable pufferfish to hobbyists who have an aquarium of 100 gallons or larger to provide this beauty enough room to grow and swim. In general Arothron meleagris have a moderate temperament, can live in community tanks as long as the other fish are of the same size and temperament, but aren't reef safe. Keep it in optimal health by feeding it a variety of frozen meaty foods.
