How much do porcs eat? I just got a 5.5" porc and while I don't want to overfeed him I don't want to starve him, either.

A cowfish or a tang. My trigger hates my puffer.

puffer feeding

I have a 3" porcupine. I have to feed him 2-3x a day. And, as they say, picky eater. I keep him fed enough that he hasn't bothered any of my other fish, just ate all my snails, of course. I'm about to post to see if there are any suggestions on a fish that will help clean with my stock.

I would be very careful about overfeeding the puffer, they will eat themselves to death and overfeeding could cause some serious water quality issues. My porcy is about 10 inches and never bothers other fish, but produces a great deal of waste.

Ever see the harlequin Tusk fish, they are a nice looking fish and can be mean also.

two rules for puffers ,never put another puffer in the tank ,does not matter if its a different puffer, they will figh and kill each other ,next you can put any fish with a puffer ,make sue is not to small that can be eaten then again my puffer is huge and has no interest in my small clown or angel
also keep in mind a box fish-cow fish-puffer all from the same family ,can nt have more then one to a tank, almost forgot lion fish and puffers dont do well either, I tried several tims ,either the lion stressed out the puffer or the puffer killed the lion other then that I have trigers-angels-tangs-clowns-groupers and eels with my puffer, no problem and its been about fiver years

A trigger would be a great addition. I have a 110 with a Dogface Puffer and a Clown Trigger.They are both about 4 inches long.
