The Yellow Belly Dog Face Puffer is usually gray to brown with yellowing on its underside. There are sporadic black spots through-out the body. It will usually wrap its tail inward for a sense of security.


The Yellow Belly Dog Face Puffer is quite shy and may stay secluded most of the day, however will become quite active during feedings. Keep with non-competitive tank-mates. Have plenty of live rock for shelter. The pufferfish will consume smaller fish and inverts in the tank. Never use a net to transfer a puffer.


Feed a variety of meaty foods. Pufferfish really go for squid and clams. Train your puffer to eat Ocean Nutrition Formula One Pellets for extra nutrition.
