So cute! Snorkeler rescues trapped porcupine puffer as mate watches on

By Leonard Ho - Posted Apr 01, 2016 09:00 AM
A snorkeler carefully cuts free a porcupine pufferfish ensnared in netting, all while the puffer's friend hovers close for the entire ordeal. Once free, the two fish swim away side by side. As aquarists know, fish can form some pretty powerful bonds.

This video was recorded on March 20, 2016 and published by CORE Sea, a marine conservation and research organization focused on Southeast Asian (predominantly Thailand) reefs.  As sweet as the video is, it's a little depressing to see so much man-made ocean debris; the snorkeler is even cutting the discarded netting with a broken glass bottle.

I'm a passionate aquarist of over 30 years, a coral reef lover, and the blog editor for Advanced Aquarist. While aquarium gadgets interest me, it's really livestock (especially fish), artistry of aquariums, and "method behind the madness" processes that captivate my attention.
