Say Hello to this Fahaka puffer

Measuring around 2inches, meet my new fahaka puffer. He is skinny and probably has some kind of internal parasite. More pics and a video in the next few months to show you all his progress and growth

At least 12inches and lives way past 10 years as long as I feed accordingly and keep up with 50% pwc.
I'm gonna try to set up another huge tank next to his 120g for a porcupine

I'm trying settling with 1 large FW and 1 large SW tank (plus a feeder crayfish tank).

That guy is pretty cute. He does look skinny, but I am sure you will have him looking better in now time.
