    Gorgeous!
    Is this the one also commonly called the "dog puffer ?

    Few weeks ago the LFS had one, quite big and his face was just like a puppy face looking at you and they said it was a dog puffer?
    Think it was salt water though..

    The pity about these unusual Puffers is that they are best in species only tanks.
