Is that a freshwater puffer? It looks like the marine reticulated puffer, arothron reticularis, but if its kept with rays i dont think its marine?

Sigh. The recent wave of marine fish being sold in lfs is disconcerting.

Yup agreed. I recently saw a lot of dead mangrove jacks in Y618, they were taking it from the tanks. Hopefully they will realize not all marine fish can be sold as "converted" fw fish.
