I have a valentini puffer and its teeth seem to be getting to long, is there anything I can give him to help stop them getting to long ?

"Takes out his large metal file and grabs fish....." Actually I have no idea, but an interesting question.

Do you feed him snails? They should help file his teeth down. Otherwise you may need to resort to DIY dental work.

Other shell fish will help keep the beak trimmed down as well. Things like shrimp, krill, clams, etc. It doesnt' have to be live but at least have the shells on. Here is an article on caring for your puffer.
