Spotted Congo Puffer Care

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to purchase a Spotted Congo Puffer (Tetraodon Schoutedeni) and in doing some research I've seen some discrepancy in the water parameters that would be best for them. My home water is right around 7.5 pH and is moderately hard. In your experience would this work, or what parameters did you keep them in? Thank you!

I’ve personally kept and spawned them in the below parameters. They are a very adaptable puffer. 

Temperature: 73-80 °F (23-27 °C) I try and keep mine at 76°F 

pH: 6.5 - 7.6 (I know of one person that kept them in 8)

Ammonia: 0 ppm

Nitrite: 0 ppm

Nitrate: 20-80 ppm

KH: 0 - 120 ppm (0°-7° dKH)

GH: 125.3 - 356 ppm (7°-20° dGH) Soft to Very Hard
