I have a small SA puffer (about one and a half inches and needed some advice on feeding. He is an a tank with a number of other fish and seems to mainly get bloodworm. What else can I feed him on e.g. whats best for him to crunch on??
I have 2 SA puffers, quite big now, but I have tried snails, cockles, muscles etc etc and they refuse to eat anything except bloodworm! I even witheld food for a day to wait till they were very hungry but couldn't leave it any longer as I have other fish too!
So I trim their teeth every few months when they start to grow too long using cuticle cutters whilst they are 'anaesthetised' with a small amount of clove oil.
I was very nervous about this the first time, I'm sure some of the members will remember my paranoia! But now it is still a little worrying as you have to be quick as use the correct amount of clove oil, careful not to cut their mouth etc, but they are fine with it and I have it down to a fine art, and they have lovely short teeth now
If you have to go down this road, message me and I'll find the link to the page for you as I have it printed off at home.
