The Striped Dogface Puffer is not safe for invertebrates but will not harm corals. When threatened they will puff up like a football to deter predators.
Puffers also have strong teeth that grow throughout their lives, so they need to be offered hard shelled live food often to keep their teeth worn down. Striped Dogface Puffers should be fed a diet consisting of fresh or frozen chopped Shrimp, Squid, Clams, and Crab Flesh, or other meaty preparations.
