hello i dream of tiki...

It's actually an orange flicker flame bulb (if you look at the torch on the right in the photo, it's like that--but the smaller version). So he actually glows a bit orange from his tummy with some slight movement. Maybe his stomach moves because he ate some toxic glowing sushi and it's still alive in there? One can only speculate, but I recommend staying away from bad sushi nonetheless.

I was going to color him blue-green but that bulb was too fat (it was a christmas bulb) for the hole I drilled and I was sick of drilling (puffers have thick skin!) so went with a more slim line version. The low wattage night light bulbs are slimmer in design too than the rounded Christmas lights...just a little bit of trivia when you're out bulb shopping.
