Figure 8 on a diet?

My figure 8 puffer seems to have stopped eating. Before, he was attacking the turkey baster I use to feed the tank, now he won't eat. Any suggestions?

What do his teeth look like? What's the SG? Refusing food, or spitting it out is one sign of overgrown teeth. Puffers need a varied diet, especially of crunchy foods. Snails, frozen/freeze-dried krill/ plankton, shrimp tails, or pieces of almost anything you find at the fish dept of your grocery store (except fish).
