How to trim a puffer fish teeth

Here is a video that I shot when I trimmed my two figure 8 puffer fish's beaks (AKA Teeth). There is no audio because my cockatiels decided to have a chirp-off when I was cutting the teeth. It is meant more for an educational standpoint so if you don't like it at least you learned what a figure 8 puffer fish looks like.


  1. Thanks for posting this. I need to trim my figure 8 teeth but I'm worried it will go wrong

  2. just make sure not to leave them in the clove oil too long as it actually makes them stop breathing. I try to keep it less than a minute or two. You may need to move them back and forth when you place them back in their regular water to help the air move over their gills. Good luck.
