How many small nassarious snails would I have to feed my puffer to keep his teeth ground down? Will he find them and eat them if I just leave them in the tank? Or do I really need to feed them to him?
This will be my first aggressive tank so I'll have lots of how much of what to feed later on
that CUC seems adequate, but remember there is always a risk with a snowflake eel.
You can go to a fish market and they should sell shrimp with shells still on them.
I'm not really familiar with how much snails to feed the puffer, sorry.
If you chose to feed prawns with the shell still on, be sure to remove the head.IMO
I would feed as much as he would eat within around 2min twice a day. If it seems he is gaining a lot of weight on that cut it down, if he is becoming quite thin, feed more. It's just one of those things that vary from fish to fish.
Not having a quarantine tank is like playing Russian Roulette, nobody wins, you can only see who plays the longest... Unfortunately, I don't have the time, money or patience for a quarantine tank so... That sucks
