GunieaFowl Puffer – Arothron meleagris


Arothron meleagris is the scientific name for the guineafowl pufferfish, a species of pufferfish found in the tropical waters of the Indo-Pacific region. This species is known for its striking appearance, featuring a distinctive pattern resembling the plumage of a guinea fowl, with spots and stripes of black, white, and gray.

Guineafowl pufferfish are popular in the aquarium trade due to their unique markings and playful behavior. However, like all pufferfish, they possess the ability to inflate their bodies with water when threatened, making them appear much larger and deterring potential predators.

In the wild, they inhabit coral reefs and rocky areas, feeding primarily on a diet of crustaceans, mollusks, and algae. While they can make fascinating additions to a marine aquarium, they require specialized care and a suitable environment to thrive.
