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

    Received a great little puffer! Full of life and acclimated to my tank wonderfully. Wanted to get him small so he could grow with the rest of the fish in the tank. Shipping was fast and luckily not delayed by UPS. Had him by 9am. Very secure and heat pack in box kept his temp regulated. Will definitely be ordering more fish from this supplier.

    The puffer (Taco) showed up next day and was in great looking health. 2 days in the tank and swimming just fine. Easy transaction from start to finish.

    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!
