Balloon Puffers/ Spiny Porcupine Fish (2-4 inches)

The balloonfish, also known as the spiny porcupinefish and spiny puffer, ranges worldwide in tropical waters and some subtropical and temperate areas. It is a member of the family Diodontidae, the spiny puffers. This fish, along with its close relatives, has the ability to inflate its body by taking water or air into portions of its digestive tract, increasing its diameter size by as much as three times. When the body expands, long spines that normally lie flat on the body are erected, not only adding to the apparent size, but also creating a formidable weaponry to discourage attack by most would-be predators

    Such a cutie

    Posted by Carrie Mullins on 4th Jun 2021

    I had never ordered fish online and shipped. Was very nervous but wanted a puffer but my lfs’s prices are high for a guy like this. Took the jump and so glad I did. It arrived healthy and very active. Huge appetite and seems to be adjusting well! Thrilled with this little cutie!

    My puffer came healthy and active. Ate the same day. Shy but slowly getting more active with my other fish. Very happy with my purchase. Was about 2 inches and super cute.

    My puffer arrived warm, safe and was packed very well to make sure he was not under stress. He is doing amazing! Such a great addition to our predator tank.
