    Hi Guys

    I have this puffer in my tank that was sold to me as a Mimic Saddle Puffer. I now very much doubt that it is in fact that.

    Please assist me with an ID. He is super cool though.

    Sorry for multiple posts.

    Your one seems to be the blue spotted puffer..

    The papuan had an orange around the mouth and there are differences in the fins

    Thanks :) He is a great fish, chilled, and seems to help with my algae problem too. He eats frozen pellets and algae. Love this guy.

    I got him on the forum, was advertised here. But the guy thought it was a mimic saddle puffer. I didn't think so but he looks super cool and is great to watch. Have not seen one before.
