    WIN_20180619_15_38_55_Pro.jpg I just thought this was worth sharing because it is kind of cool, most of you probably know those pea puffers normally stay on frozen food their whole life but somehow I got mine to eat pellets and bug bites:)

    all I did is put it in the tank once and he ate it he also only eats food that is sinking or floating.

    yep once the food hits the bottom he wont eat it if its dry food, but if its frozen he will eat it on the ground.

    My puffer will eat from tweezers which helps with the mess. But she is picky. If the bloodworms are too long, won’t eat it. If the mysis shrimp are soaked too long in garlic, won’t eat it. If the food touches the substrate, won’t eat it but if the food lands in the java moss, she loves searching for it. Eats snails but I’ve never witnessed it, just find the shells. She is a character!
