    What size tank would you be putting it in? And I don't recommend a fish-eating fish, means no small tank mates and when feeding it feeder goldfish, there is a high chance of disease spreading to your fish from the goldfish!

    Dwarf puffers LOVE snails and most go crazy for bloodworms and brine shrimp. They are super interactive and intelligent too.

    Almost any fish will eat bugs if they're small enough to fit in their mouth, I feed one of my bettas fruit flies every few days. You could look into Oscars? I don't know much about them but they'd really appreciate that big space.

    Oscars eat insects, are big, and have a lot of personality.

    Any fish will eat insects. Very few fish in the hobby need to eat other fish. And the ones that will eat other fish, do not need them. There are much better food options than feeding a fish another fish.

    I think it's cool and I'm getting tired of other fish it would be cool to see a fish that eats live food
