Valentini Pufferfish

The Valentini Pufferfish is also called the Black Saddle Pufferfish, Blacksaddled Toby, Valentini Toby, or Saddled Toby. It is
found in the tropical Indo-Pacific from the Red Sea to Eastern Australian coast.

Males are 4.3 in., females about 3 in. Small fish such as Damsels, Tangs and some Wrasses may be troublesome. Tank size is a minimum of 40 gal. When threatened, this fish will inflate its body to almost twice its normal size. To avoid alarming it, transfer it using a container. Feed a varied diet of meaty foods including; squid, krill, clams, and hard shelled shrimp. The hard shelled shrimp helps wear down the fish’s ever-growing teeth. It should be fed two to three times a day.
