    They look like a T. lineatus in my opinion. I only see 5 red spots and a number of characters of the typical T. lineatus coloration even on the third picture. T.pustulatus should look like this:
    http://www.thepufferforum.com/forum/.../T_Pustulatus/ with many spots and no dark/bright lines as they can be seen on these specimens (e.g. in front of the pectoral fins).

    For discussions on the ID of T. pustulatus also see: viewtopic.php?f=56&t=16616&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&hilit=pu stulatus

    They appear to have many spots as juveniles and reddish lines as adults. It is - in my opinion - unclear if they are really a separate species instead of a regional variation and if so, by which characters they can be told apart from T. lineatus.
