Puffer Fish


With your experience with puffer fish how agressive are they? have they ever eaten any of your fish have they ever went after your other fish or anything like that. I was looking at a dogface.

Some puffer like the box fish ,when scared or dieing can give off a poison that can wipe out your tank.But a Dogface I don't think they do.

Dogface grow large and will eventually eat your smaller fish. I have a valentini he rocks, I just can get large snails in my tank or he will eat them. He stays away from the tiny ones, their foot is just too small. here is a pick of him sleeping:

Pretty aggressive. He's never gone after another fish - would be kind of stupid to go after a lion thoug. If you're thinking of getting one, I'd stay with other tank mates that are just as large and aggressive.

I wouldn't try it unless it's very large and aggressive too. Triggers, groupers, eels, lions, anglers, etc. would be better choices.
