Spiny Box Puffer
The Spiny Box Puffer, also known as the Web Burrfish, boasts a tan to yellow body adorned with dark spots and short, fixed spines that help protect it from larger, more aggressive fish. Its teeth are fused into a beak-like structure. A large aquarium is necessary, and it should be a fish-only tank with ample room for swimming. While it is not aggressive with others in its own family, it has been known to nip at slow-moving fish and long-finned fish. This puffer will also eat invertebrates found in a reef tank. To maintain optimal health, the Spiny Box Puffer requires a varied diet of meaty foods such as squid, krill, clams, and hard-shelled shrimp to help wear down their ever-growing teeth.
