Until recently most species of freshwater puffer from Africa and Asia have been placed in the genus Tetraodon. Currently this concept changes. The name Tetraodon is restricted now to the six species of freshwater puffer occuring in Africa, namely Tetraodon duboisi, T. lineatus, T. mbu, T. miurus, T. pustulatus and T. schoutedeni. All other species are placed in different and often new genera; we will introduce all these changes to you in the upcoming weeks.
We have currently three species of African pufferfish in stock: T. lineatus from Nigeria
; from the Congo originate T. miurus (we have them in different colours) and T. mbu (we have different sizes).
For our customers: T. lineatus has code 190305, T. miurus 191303 and T. mbu 191000 and 191004 on our stocklist. Please note that we exclusively supply the wholesale trade.
