  1. Tank Size: Provide a tank of at least 30 gallons for a single Figure Eight Puffer, and add an extra 10 gallons for each additional puffer.

  2. Water Parameters: Maintain stable conditions with a temperature range of 75-82°F (24-28°C), a pH level of 7.0-8.5, and moderately hard to hard water.

  3. Filtration: Use efficient filtration to ensure good water quality and oxygenation. Frequent water changes are essential as puffers are messy eaters.

  4. Aquascape: Create an environment with smooth gravel or sand substrate. Add caves and hiding spots, and include some floating plants.

  5. Tank Mates: Figure Eight Puffers are best kept in a species-specific setup as they can be aggressive and territorial. If combining them, choose non-aggressive, similarly sized companions.

  6. Diet: They are carnivores and need a diet primarily of live or frozen foods like snails, shrimp, and high-quality pellets. Their diet helps keep their beak-like teeth trimmed.
