I just got a saddleback valentini puffer for my tank. It has now been almost a week and he has not eaten or even nipped and my turbo snails nor my hermit crabs. I know their teeth growing and I was wondering if there is anything else I can feed him to grind his teeth down so I don't have to cut them. Also I'm currently feeding him frozen krill.

Try other types of food, I have a Bennett's puffer (similar kind, sharp nose puffers) and he eats anything and everything, Even flakes! Try mysis shrimp, brine, blood worms just keep mixing it up. For some reason mine leaves snails alone but loves crabs
