The Fahaka requires a very large aquarium, and because of their temperament, are best kept by themselves. They can become very aggressive in captivity, and caution must be exercised when choosing tank mates. Many plants and rocks should be included in the set-up providing the Puffer with plenty of hiding places.
The Fahaka has not been successfully bred in captivity and little is known about their breeding habits. It is known that, in the wild, they spawn in very deep water.
Their diet should consist mainly of crustaceans such as brine shrimp, krill, mollusks, and earthworms.
