Honeycomb toby

The Honeycomb toby lives in the reef-associated, marine, depth range 1 - 30 m environment.

The diet of the Honeycomb Toby needs a varied diet of meaty foods including squid, krill, clams, and hard shelled shrimp to help wear down their ever growing teeth. More

The Honeycomb Toby is also known as the Honeycomb Puffer. Members of the Canthigaster genus are called Sharp-nosed Puffers or Tobies. It lacks pelvic fins, but has learned to use the pectoral fins to move about the aquarium. More

The Honeycomb Toby is an attractive sharpnosed species, decorated with white spots. It is very similar to several other species in the genus. As with all puffers, this fish has the ability to "puff" when stressed, though this should be avoided if possible. More
