Pond snails or ramshorns are best, the ones the size of your puffers eye are best. Welcome to the forum, tell us about your set up.
It's amazing how easy maintenance is. If done regularly and thoroughly

You will wake up one morning with just a fahaka, nowt else. That's 99% certain. This guy will need min 120g for himself, and trust me moving a large fahaka is not fun, I learnt this from experience lol. I would upgrade ASAP and defo at least get the slow fish out of there as they will be the first to go

Upto 18". Start a new thread about your fahaka in the hospital section, remember when you do to answer all questions in red.
