One of the smallest and most peaceful of all freshwater puffers, the Spotted Congo or Schoutedeni Puffer is found in stretches of the middle Congo River in Central Africa. Once relatively common in the trade, unrest in its native habitat has made it rare, sought after, and difficult to find. In the wild, they mainly inhabit clear water areas with moderate to low current and will do best in an aquarium with similar conditions. Peaceful, hardy, and active, they will get along with most tankmates as long as they aren’t small enough to be considered a meal.
