Rare Blue Porcupine Puffer Fish

AvatarBy Leonard Ho 9 years agoNo Comments

According to Absolutely Fish (New Jersey, USA), they have not seen a blue Porcupine Puffer variant in over 3 years and have only seen eight specimens in 25 years.  This specimen was collected from Bali and is being offered for sale for $199.  Reefbuilders has identified the species as a Diodon eydouxii, which can stay blue (albeit a lighter shade of blue) into adulthood.

Just promise us you won’t try to poison your wife with this puffer fish.

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
