a popular aquarium puffer, despite its highly aggressive nature.
It grows to a good size, and has a hearty appetite (as anyone who has tried
to keep it with other fish knows). This is mind, the fahaka is best
kept alone in your aquarium. Its natural habitat is open water and vegetative
fringes, where it generally feeds on mollusks. It will feed on other
fish if it is able to catch them.
