Green spotted puffer fish (Dichotomyctere nigroviridis) is a unique fish. Its back has saturated green color that contrasts beautifully against its white abdomen. The uncommon body shape and its pugdog-like face, protuberant eyes and little mouth add even more unusualness to the fish appearance. Green spotted puffer behavior is also quite far from the one peculiar to other fishes – it’s a very playful, active and curious fish. You may also say that the fish has a personality – it recognizes its owner and becomes very active when it sees him.
