Exploring Under Water


Pretty Pea Puffers


Pea puffers are the tiny little fish...with the long list of names! They are sometimes called pea, dwarf, bumblebee, blue-eyed, pygmy or malabar puffers. They are from inland waters of India to China. You might find a small school of them in a river, lake, floodplain and even sometimes in a brackish water estuary.


Pea puffers are intelligent little fish and very inquisitive. In the wild they will live in areas with lots of plants and many hiding places. They will set up their own territory and defend it very well. They each will swim in their own unique pattern and are quite fun to watch.
