My green spotted puffer likes frozen krill very much. Small live snails even better. They'll eat bloodworms, glassworms, pieces of frozen shrimp and fish, ect... Mine totally ignores flake or anything freeze dried. I expect, although I haven't tried it yet, that he would eat freeze dried krill. I expect your fig 8 would have a similar appetite.

Hi liquid69rain,

I frequently check out two "Puffer-specific" web sites.
http://www.pufferlovers.com
and
http://puffernet.tripod.com/main.html

Both have oodles of information about Puffers...

I hope this helps.
