Freshwater puffers are becoming increasingly popular in the aquarium
hobby. Leopard puffers and figure 8 puffers are pretty good brackish
water community fish however in the case of most other freshwater
puffers they do not get along well in a community setting and do best
when kept alone in a species only tank. That being said the Mbu puffer
is the most peacefull of the large freshwater puffers and can be housed
with other fish on occasion. In contrast puffers like the Congo Puffer
or Fahaka Puffers must be housed alone.
