I was at WOF last tues, and in the back room that is all fish only these two butterflies were chasing this cute yellow dogface puffer around and all of a sudden he poofed up. All these little tiny prickers emerged from his skin when he was fully inflated and his poot little eyes were all sucked in, it was the funniest thing. Her then sat there and shook like a wet dog till he deflated, and seemd very uncomfortable while doing so. What a awesome fish :) I wish I was less excited as I had a camera phone in my pocket but spaced it.

I've never seen my Narrowline Puffer puff up, he may when I try to catch him to move him to the 125.....

I took this picture while diving in Jamaica last months. Our dive guide picked up this Puffer from underneath a rock. I wish I had a better camera but you get the idea:

i love puffers

Great pix of the puffer! I have seen many while diving and just love them. Wish I could get them for my tank but I want a reef community. Oh well.

Come out to the RFC- as of late our 4-5ft. green moray in one of the 450 gals. has been going after one of our 6" stars and stripes and he instantly puffs up on contact and the green seems to push him around for a bit with his nose. Pretty funny to see. Anyways though, this won't last long as the puffer is going to be moved to the 3500 gallon shortly to be with his much larger relatives.

Here's the beast....
