Don't forget these...

  1. Tank Setup:

    • Fahaka Puffers require a large tank, at least 125 gallons for adults, with ample swimming space.
    • Use a sandy substrate to prevent injury to their sensitive beak.
  2. Water Parameters:

    • Maintain a temperature between 75-82°F (24-28°C).
    • Keep the pH level around 7.0 to 8.5.
    • Ensure water hardness between 10-15 dGH.
  3. Filtration:

    • Use a powerful filtration system to keep water clean, as puffers are messy eaters.
  4. Tank Decor:

    • Include hiding spots like caves and large structures.
    • Use hardy plants, as Fahaka Puffers may uproot softer ones.
  5. Diet:

    • Provide a varied diet including high-quality pellets, snails, shrimp, and occasional live or frozen foods.
    • Monitor their beak growth, as it may need trimming if not worn down naturally.
  6. Social Behavior:

    • Fahaka Puffers are aggressive and territorial, keep them singly or in large tanks with compatible mates.
    • Avoid housing them with small fish, as they may be viewed as prey.
  7. Compatibility:

    • Choose tank mates carefully, avoiding fin-nippers or smaller fish that can be seen as food.
