Freshwater Dwarf Puffer
Carinotetraodon travancoricus

 

This small freshwater puffer fish is endemic to the river Pamba in Kerala, Southwest India. Males have a brown stripe on their abdomen and they reach a size of about 2.5cm. Like all puffer fish, Dwarf Puffers can be aggressive and may nip the fins of other fish so it is therefore best to keep them in a species only tank.  They are a very inquisitive species, being very aware of what is going on outside of their tank, making them a fun fish to keep. They prefer slow moving water and a heavily planted tank but unlike other puffers, do not require salt.
The best type of food is frozen bloodworms, brine shrimp, daphnia with the occasional earth worm as a treat. They will also appreciate finely grated frozen mussels and like all puffers, they love to eat small snails!
Ideal water conditions would be water temperature of 22°C - 28°C and pH 7.0 - 8.0
