The dwarf pea pufferfish, also known as the Malabar pufferfish, pea pufferfish or pygmy pufferfish, is a small, freshwater pufferfish endemic to Kerala and southern Karnataka in Southwest India. It is threatened by overfishing for the aquarium trade, and by habitat loss. Due to this, the specimens in the aquaria hobby are now tank bred in which they are now hardier. It is known for pufferfishes to be fed with hard-shelled food once every often. Contrary to popular beliefs, this is not the case for the Dwarf Pea Puffers. It is however, important to feed them a variety of nutritious food such as Mysis shrimp, Brine shrimp and Bloodworms.
