Photo of the Week - Canthigaster janthinoptera

The Honeycomb Puffer (Canthigaster janthinoptera) is small fish (max size about four inches) from all over the Tropical Pacific. They are hardy, well suited to marine aquariums. Feed them a varied diet, at least a couple times a day. We don't recommend keeping more than one Canthigaster in an aquarium as they can be aggressive with conspecifics. They eat a wide variety of invertebrates in the wild, which equates to a fish that is risky to keep in reef aquariums.
