The Puffer fish is a popular food for many backyard fishers, but not everyone is a fan of the fish.
The Fishmonger’s Dictionary describes Puffer as a “sweet-smelling, yellow-brown, fleshy, slimy-looking fish with a dark red to reddish head.”
But some people like it better than others.
Here’s how to determine the optimal size for each fish.
Puffer is best for small-to-medium sized aquariums.
Puffers are best for ponds and ponds with a large gravel substrate, which makes them ideal for spawning or for a larger aquarium.
Puffed Puffer (pictured above) is best suited to smaller aquariums, where a larger substrate is required.
For larger aquariums with smaller substrate requirements, you may need to adjust your aquarium’s substrate for Puffer.
