    DESCRIPTION

    The Figure-8 Puffer (Tetraodon biocellatus), often simply called the Figure-8 Pufferfish, is a freshwater pufferfish species known for its distinctive markings and engaging behavior. Native to Southeast Asia, including Thailand, Cambodia, and Malaysia, these puffers are favored by aquarium enthusiasts for their unique appearance and active nature.

    Here's more information about the Figure-8 Puffer:

    1. Markings: The name "Figure-8" comes from the distinctive black markings on the puffer's back that resemble the number 8 or an infinity symbol. Their bodies are typically tan or beige, creating a striking contrast with the dark markings.

    2. Size: Figure-8 Puffers are relatively small, reaching lengths of about 3 inches (7.5 cm) when fully grown.

    3. Habitat: In the wild, Figure-8 Puffers inhabit slow-moving or still waters, such as marshes, ponds, and backwaters of rivers.

    4. Behavior: These puffers are known for their active and inquisitive behavior. They are social and can be kept in groups, but pay attention to territorial behaviors and potential aggression.

    5. Tank Setup: Provide a well-planted aquarium with hiding spots and open swimming areas. Aquatic plants and decor help create visual barriers and create a sense of security.

    6. Water Conditions: Maintain a temperature range of 75 to 82°F (24 to 28°C) and a pH around 7.0 to 8.0. Regular water changes and proper filtration are important.

    7. Diet: Figure-8 Puffers are primarily carnivorous. Offer a varied diet that includes high-quality frozen or live foods such as bloodworms, brine shrimp, snails, and other small crustaceans.

    8. Compatibility: While Figure-8 Puffers can be kept in groups, be cautious with tankmates. They may nip at fins of slower or long-finned fish. Choose tankmates that are fast and can hold their own.

    9. Breeding: Breeding Figure-8 Puffers in captivity is challenging and rare due to their specific requirements and behaviors.

    Figure-8 Puffers are popular choices for their charming markings, behavior, and smaller size compared to some other puffer species. As with any fish, understanding their care requirements and providing a suitable environment are crucial for their well-being. Always ensure that your aquarium setup meets their needs and provides a safe and stimulating habitat.
