Puffers eat snails so I'd say no.


Caresheet: Malaysian Trumpet Snails | Aquariadise

Note: Malaysian trumpet snails do not make good food for puffer fish. Besides dwarf puffers, all species use their teeth to crack snail shells and many aquarists have reported the exceptionally hard and thick shell of the trumpet snail causing their puffer’s teeth to break. This can leave the puffer unable to eat.

They might attack them but mts usually burrow under the substrate so they may survive and their pretty prolific breeders so the population could survive even if some did become snacks.

Pea puffers don't bite the shell, they sort of suck the snail out of it, so it's ok if you want to get them. However, if you want to establish a colony of snails for puffer food, bladder snails do the trick well.

I'm keeping some MTS in another tank where they breed the only other question I have would be If they could burrow in gravel substate.
