Tetraodon cochinchinensis

Tetraodon cochinchinensis
Fangs Puffer
Tetraodon cochinchinensis is part of the 'target' puffer group, which contains 4 other species, namely T. cambodgiensis, T. leirus, T. turgidus and T. hilgendorfi. Some confusion surrounds this group, as they all hail from the same geographical area and share very similar physical characteristics. Cochinchinensis can be distinguished by the clear red spot situated towards the rear of the fish. It's one of the more frequently seen puffers in the hobby, though it is by no means common. All the Tetraodon species are ambush predators in nature.
