ALL PUFFED UP!

Meet the amazing, expanding fish…

This month we’re looking at the cheeky pufferfish of Dichotomyctere. With sharp ‘beaks’ that can make short work of fish and fingers, they need to be handled with care. Tim Smith takes us on a journey of species identification and aquarium husbandry, so that you don’t make an expensive error.

What’s in the January issue of PFK:

•    INFLATED EGOS: How to keep Dichotomyctere pufferfish, with their larger-than-life attitudes and bags of charm. 
•    MORE THAN CLOWNS: Looking for a loach that won’t grow too big? You’ll be amazed at some of the stunning options.
•    ‘SCAPE OFF: We break down the top-seven, world-leading aquascapes of the 2023 International Aquatic Plants Layout Contest.  
•    FROZEN ASSETS: A look at how to get the most out of your pond this coming winter. 
•    LIMBOS IN LIMBO: Limbochromis could be the next big thing in aquarium cichlids, as long as breeders get behind it.  
•    AQUAEL HYPERMAX REVIEW: Our hands-on, tried-and-tested review of Aquael’s new colossus of an external canister.
