Malabar Dwarf Puffer - Carinotetraodon travancoricus

The Pea Puffer aka Pygmy Pufferfish is one of the smallest of the pufferfish family and are more ideal as they can live in full freshwater in comparison to others that require brackish water condition.  
They are a bit more shy compared to other larger puffers due to their smaller size as they are prey in the wild to other larger fish.  Also known as the Pea Pufferfish due to their super small size.

Despite their small size, they can be quite aggressive to even fish larger than them.  They can get territorial so it is best to keep them with larger peaceful and hardy fish.

    Just set up a planted tank, so I bought two. Due to corona a lot of places don’t have these but this store had them in stock. Shipping was fast. The next morning at noon there was a box on my door step. The fish were all healthy. They are zipping around my tank.

    Pet Zone San Diego put the health and safety of my fish first. They arrived happy and healthy. There was enough packaging in the box so they didn't slide around too much. After a day in the tank they are much more lively and exploring their surroundings. I would strongly recommend this store for any of your fish supply needs.

    They arrived on time.

    The reason why I give this four stars is that the pea puffers all arrived alive. But one arrived with a spinal injury and didn't survive. So the other two are thriving and doing really well!!

    Malabar Pea Puffers

    I think these are probably the cutest things I've seen in a long time. They did come a lot smaller than I expected. They are tiny!!! Fortunately I started a mosquitoe larvae bucket. I think that saved me as far a feeding them. They do hunt them down and eat them. I don't do worms!

    Great Puffers!

    I received these 3 puffers this week. All were alive and active upon delivery. They have been in the tank for 2 days now and are coloring up and curious. They are pretty small, but eating well and should grow pretty quickly!
