Description

Also known as the Nile puffer, lineatus puffer (Tetraodon lineatus). The Fakaha is a large puffer that can’t be seen in aquarist tanks quite often.

This is a freshwater fish which in the wild inhabits in the Nile river and also it’s known as Nile puffer fish. Fahaka puffer has a very curious and intelligent nature and it becomes domesticated quite easily, however at that the fish is rather aggressive towards other fishes. Its very likely that fahaka puffer will kill or hurt other fishes that will inhabit in the same tank with it.

All tetraodon fishes have strong teeth and fakaha puffer uses them to tear the pieces from its tank mate bodies. This tetraodon is a predator, in the wild it feeds on all types of snails, spineless and insects.
