Mimic Saddle Puffer



Mimic Saddle Puffer is an eel that has evolved the shape of its body and colors in order to make fun and appearance of the Valentini Puffer. In a similar fashion to puffers, they look like they are predators and would be a sour meal for others. They have a fascinating appearance, with dark brown bands along the middle, brownish-orange spotting on the lower portion as well as yellow fins, and blue stripes running down the back. They do not have pelvic fins however, it has learned to use pectoral fins for moving around the aquarium.

Mimic Saddle Puffer Information If the fish was to be detained as a fake or fraud, the Mimic Saddle Filefish could end up in jail. It's a fake. Mimic Saddle Filefish is not actually a pufferfish in any way, it's actually a Filefish that has evolved over time to look and behave like pufferfish. Why? to protect itself from predators. Pufferfish can be poisonous due to tetrodotoxin found in their skin as well as other tissues of the body. They are poisonous to a variety of species of fish, so because they look like pufferfish, and act exactly like one, the fake saddle filefish will keep predators away from seeking to consume the creatures. The Mimic Filefish is not poisonous. They not only appear like puffers, but they are also similar to them. They live in the same water and even shoal with the genuine Valentine Puffers.

Helpful Questions From Clients
Frequently Asked Questions
Is hiring a professional necessary to set up a saltwater aquarium?

As a general rule, a larger custom aquarium might require installation by a professional. However, a kit from our online fish store is relatively affordable and beginner friendly. That means you should have no problem setting it up yourself.

Which saltwater aquarium fish should you choose when starting out?

Consider a yellow tang fish. This popular saltwater aquarium fish does a great job of coexisting with other types of fish you’ll find in our online fish store.

How does a saltwater aquarium differ from a freshwater one?

Saltwater aquariums require a bit more maintenance and monitoring than freshwater tanks. Different fish require different levels of salinity, pH tolerances, and temperature requirements. They also require specialized pumps, filters, and other equipment that can handle salt. We can guide you through everything you need to know to set up a healthy, thriving reef tank.

Do fish in a saltwater aquarium swim in a school?

That depends on the species. However, if it’s a fish that swims in a school in the wild, they’ll do the same in an aquarium. Some fish that swim in schools include the green and blue chromis, cardinalfish, and dartfish, for example. When ordering from an online fish store, make sure you do your research on how specific fish species behave to ensure they’ll school (or at least coexist) with your current fish.

Is the effort required to maintain a saltwater aquarium worth it?

Yes! Many aquarists dream of owning thriving saltwater aquariums. You have a tiny piece of the ocean in your home, featuring magical and exotic fish that can only survive in saltwater.
