The Jewel Toby Puffer lacks pelvic fins, but has learned to use the pectoral fins to move about the aquarium.
A fish-only aquarium is suitable. Its teeth are actually a fused beak-like structure. It may eat invertebrates found in a reef tank. It becomes alarmed when in a net, therefore, use a container to transfer it.
The diet of the Jewel Toby Puffer needs to be varied meaty foods including; squid, krill, clams, and hard shelled shrimp to help wear down their ever growing teeth.
The Jewel Toby Puffer (C.solandri) and the Papuan Toby Puffer (C.papua) have very similar characteristics. The lack of orange colouration around the mouth of the Jewel Toby Puffer distinguishes these two puffers.
