Feeding Avocado puffer trumpet snails?

Fishjunkiejimmy

I recently got an Avacado puffer i believe that’s what he is. Listed on the tank was a metallic green puffer witch led me to golden puffer. However there is nothing good about this puffer so I’m going with Avocado puffer as that’s another name I’ve been led to believe they are called. Anyway my question is can I feed him trumpet snails he will greedily except frozen blood worms and eats my nuisance snails but I don’t have a lot of them as I sent the infestation to my gf tank who has a pea puffer. But I do have an abundance of these trumpet snails witch I was gonna put in and crack there shell as some of them are very big. I noticed they have quite the hard shell and did some research. I found that some puffer fish are known to break their beak eating them. I need some help here can I put some of the larger ones in and let my puffer eat the babies? Or will my puffer hurt itself trying to eat the parent trumpet snails? Or should I just put the little baby trumpet snails in ? Can I even put those in for that Matter? I’ll attach a photo of my puffer to make sure I have identified him or her I guess for the matter correctly. Any and all opinions are appreciated and welcome thanks the pic of the snail is of the larger ones but the majority of the size thanks again

I think there are a few puffer fish in the auriglobus genus that can look quite similar.

As for the snails, they should be fine.
