Is there a breed of Pea Puffer (aka Dwarf Puffer) that is specifically brackish? I don't understand how they would have a brackish specific pea puffer, unless they cultivated it themselves. I can't go putting plants in brackish water ): So, is this all BS or what?
Carinotetraodon travancoricus are freshwater for sure. There are lots of puffers but dwarf puffers are freshwater. I bet they have something different. My dwarfs are really small like dime size.
