Tetraodon lineatus tank mates The Fahaka pufferfish also known as the Lined Puffer, Nile puffer, globe fish, lineatus puffer (Tetraodon lineatus), is a tropical freshwater pufferfish found in the upper Nile, Chad, Senegal, Gambia, Geba, Volta and Turkana basins in West, Northeast and East Africa. In the wild Fahaka use their powerful beaks to feed on crustaceans, mollusks, and even other fish. In the aquarium, they feed readily on most meaty foods.

Hobbyists report keeping these puffers with other fish as juveniles but this is not case with young and mature adults. Because of their temperament, they can become very aggressive in captivity. They are known to turn on their tank mates regardless of being raised together. Fahaka pufferfish have powerful bites and can easily inflict serious injuries on other fish with ease.
