A few nibbles of bloodworm here and there along with some mysis shrimp. But he’s still a bit shy so I really haven’t seen him really eat. There are also snails of different sizes in the tank and I have not seen him eat those or any evidence (empty shells) that he’s eaten snails.
    He looks healthy and plump to me but wanted your opinions on him.

    Yep pea puffer.

    Lots of snails in the tank of various sizes. Some as small as a ball point pen tip to 1/4 - 1/2”. He does seem to nip at stuff in the Java moss and on the driftwood.
