    There are many varieties of Blackspotted Puffer, but different types of Blackspotted Puffer have different colors and body characteristics, such as Congo puffer, which mainly have red phenotype and gray phenotype. The spots on the head of the Stanley-pool puffer are like the ink blooming on the rice paper, it will drill the bottom sand, and it is very beautiful; The Fahaka puffer head has neat stripes on both sides of the body; The Giant Puffer head has complex and bright patterns, which are very eye-catching. The largest species of freshwater pikefish; The Real Palembang puffer is covered with yellow complex irregular markings and has a very fierce temperament; The Hairy puffer body is earthy brown, the biggest feature is the body with wart-like protrusions; The Pignose puffer head has an obvious V logo on it, with a pale purple to dark brown body color, and the mouth looks like a pig nose.

    1. Feeding:

    In terms of feeding, it is recommended to go to the market to buy some fresh river prawns, and then head to tail (the head of the shrimp is speared so you need to head). Tile and freeze in the freezing layer of the refrigerator (each separated by a distance), so do It is convenient to feed later. Every time you feed, use the original tank to hydrate and feed. 2-3 times a day. If you freeze it, it is very troublesome to feed. I don’t recommend it for live food, loach, small fish, etc., mainly for fear If you want to change the taste properly so that you can raise apple snails, dog heads like to eat, and you can also grind your teeth. Apple snails are very good to raise and it is easy to explode.

    2. Mixing Feeding

    Fahaka puffer, although this personality is particularly close, but it is still very ferocious in general. Unlike other fierce looks, it is still very easy to mix. For Fahaka puffer, monoculture early is to avoid bites, but it is observed that the zebra goby fish were mixed when they were young. (The zebra goby fish has no teeth yet).

    Giant puffer, this is expensive, and it must be the abandoned object at first glance, but this kind of appearance is very fierce, in fact, it is very easy to polyculture, and it can be similar to large fish to meet the size of the body. It can be mixing feeding. But for this kind of childhood, it is best not to do feed with others till it’s grow up.

    3. Disease prevention and treatment:

    If the Blackspotted Puffer often eats live food, you can consider removing endoparasites regularly. As for illness, the white spot is the easiest thing to get. It is mainly caused by the temperature difference. So the temperature must be constant in the fish tank. In order to save electricity, the heating rod is pulled out, especially when the autumn falls into the winter, the temperature must be well controlled. If you get white spot disease, slowly warm up to 30 degrees; explode oxygen; add a little salt, the dog head is not Scaly fish, not salt-tolerant. After a few days of observation, the white spots will naturally fall off when the water temperature rises. Generally, it will be effective in a few days. Feed less during the treatment. Wait until the white spots are clean. After observing for a few days, after a complete cure , Return to normal temperature and change water.

    As for enteritis, it is also a common disease. The Blackspotted puffer is very edible, but don’t feed too much, it will get sick if they can’t digest it. The fish will be hungry after a few hungers, and it is possible to sustain it. So during the usual feeding process, if the performance is not Increasing the amount of feeding will cause gutfish enteritis. What should we do if the fish have goosefish enteritis? First understand what is goosefish enteritis. There are three obvious symptoms: Occasionally, there is a faecal drag near the anus; the feces are thin white strips, and sometimes the abdomen swells; the Blackspotted puffer has no appetite, and the anus is red and swollen. Once the Blackspotted puffer enteritis is found, it only shows the first symptom, which is more manageable. First stop feeding your fish, heat up the temperature to about 30 degC and then change the water.

    The water change improves the water quality, but the water must be guaranteed not to be changed completely, and the temperature increase will largely inhibit the growth of bacteria. If the second situation occurs, it is considered more serious. Procrastination, to a certain extent, shows the seriousness of the matter and must be combined with medical treatment. Under normal circumstances, drugs for the treatment of enteritis include: Gentamicin, Penicillin, Metronidazole and other medication are good. Use according to the dose of the drug, remember not to drop more, and observe the improvement of the condition in a few days. The third situation is more special, with the worst performance. Or the Blackspotted puffer have big belly and may have ascites. The treatment method is the same as the second treatment method above. Be sure to stop eating during treatment. Don’t rush to feed after the gastroenteritis has recovered, and observe that the situation improves before feeding more nutritious food.
