The Fahaka Puffer, also known as the Nile Puffer or Band Puffer, comes from the lakes and rivers of Africa and can grow to a very large size. They will inhabit both freshwater and brackish waters of the river systems, but tend to do best in freshwater in the home aquarium. The Fahaka is brownish gray on the back fading to an off-white on the underbelly, with a series of lighter horizontal stripes running from the tail to the pectoral fin.
