Remarks: Dragon Puffers (Pao palembangensis), also referred to as Humpback Puffers, are large, moderately aggressive pufferfish from Indonesia. They should be kept in a tank at least 30 gallons if you are keeping a single specimen. They can be housed together with other Dragon Puffers, however they can be aggressive with each other so plenty of caves should be provided. They are piscivorous and will eat anything that gets too close.
