dwarf puffer tank ideas
i'm considering getting a dwarf puffer for my 5gal. i've been wondering how i would house some snails for him, as i don't really have space for a random breeding bucket or another little tank for them. I have a 20gal i considered introducing snails into and pulling out when its time to feed, but i really don't like the aesthetic of snails in there. I was wondering if it would be a good idea to infect the actual 5gal itself and let them breed in there for a few weeks before introducing the puffer, so he can hunt them and eat them when he choses. would this be a very strained bioload? would he gorge himself? i've heard of some people doing this and "never having to feed their puffer again" but im not sure how fool proof of an idea it is. i could possibly upgrade him to a 10gal to help with the bioload if that is an issue, but that might not fit on my shelf, i would have to see. do you guys have any opinions on this kind of feeding method?
