Takifugu ocellatus

The Takifugu ocellatus lives in the demersal, anadromous, freshwater, brackish, marine environment.

Takifugu ocellatus is one of about 25 puffer species of the genus Takifugu, it was first described in 1758 by Linnè himself. The members of this genus might be re-classified as belonging to the genus Fugu in future scientific studies. More

Knowing Takifugu Ocellatus has a max size of about 6 in (15 cm) would it be feasible to keep it in a 20G (~65L) tank or would something like a 30G (~100L) or 45G (~150L) tank be better. More
