Well, food or not, they are pretty darn cute little guys.

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, but thankfully they both led to fish stores.

That they are absoluteangel04....It was fun watching them when they first hatched. They were TINY! I thought something was wrong with my tank when I suddenly had a 100 yellow specks on my glass. Then I realized it was the snails and they had hatched. It's the first batch of them that has hatched.

If wishes were fishes... I'd need a few more tanks!

I also have a huge block of frozen blood worms and a good sized bag of frozen raw in the shell shrimp in my freezer...so I won't run out of food for them anytime soon.

I am hoping to get some red cherry shrimp soon and see if I can breed them for feeding the puffers as well. That way the snails don't have to do it all.

That's cool that you can raise that many.

I would love to keep a puffer some day but in Maine freshwater inverts are illegal to sell. I would have to raise all their food. Blood worms are a great supplement but I wouldn't want to have to file their teeth from lack of eating shells.
