    Help ID My Wife's Puffers

    Came home to see my wife brought in two puffers to the aquarium, worried this will not work out and looking to identify what type of puffers they are so I can plan appropriately. I know the pics aren't the greatest but they don't like taking photos

    Look like green spotted puffers to me

    I agree with Austin, Green Spotted Puffers (Tetraodon nigroviridis). They are a complicated species that range from FW when young to full marine as adults. Here are a couple of good articles that should acquaint you with their particular requirements. Should you desire a recommendation of a particularly suitable puffer species for a specific aquarium, feel free to ask. They are a complicated family and have many different species.

    Good for you! They are very cute and quite personable. Think that would be a fun FOWLR set up...
