The Pee Puffer, also known as the Dwarf Puffer or Pea Puffer, is a small and charming freshwater fish species that originates from South Asia. These tiny fish are a favorite among hobbyists due to their adorable appearance, inquisitive nature, and unique behavior.


Pee Puffers are best kept in a planted aquarium of at least 10 gallons, with plenty of hiding spots such as caves, rocks, and driftwood. They are known for their territorial behavior and may become aggressive towards other fish, so it's best to keep them in a species-only tank or with other peaceful fish that won't bother them.


These fish have a unique diet, feeding on small snails, shrimp, and other invertebrates. They have powerful jaws and teeth that they use to crack open the shells of their prey. It's important to offer a varied diet to ensure they receive all the necessary nutrients, as well as to help keep their teeth worn down.


When it comes to care difficulty, Pee Puffers are considered to be a moderate species to care for. They require a well-maintained aquarium with proper filtration and regular water changes to keep them healthy. They are sensitive to poor water quality, so it's essential to keep the tank clean and stable.
