I came on to post my own, similar thread. Heres the catch. Im not PLANNING on buying a fahaka, I supposedly already have.
Here is the deal. I drove three hours to trade in some fish at an LFS in Milwaukee. My boss wanted these fish gone, and some new fish into the lab. We need to keep as many different families of fish as possible, so adding a puffer was something new. I saw a cute little guy, but passed him off right away.
After doing three laps of the store, it was evident that we had, or were getting everything else that was in stock.
So I ended up bringing home a little inch long "fahaka"...Ill be the first to admit, his markings are somewhat ambiguous.
He was active in the store, and still is pretty active now, I have been putting in as many small FW snails as I can pick, there is a small rock cave, and I added about 5 pieces of rootwood today for him to hide in. (All covered in snails as well.)
I have tried some flake and pellets, but he turns his nose up at those. I should have read more, but figured that I would be fine...and I think I will. I just am interested in what you guys are feeding, and how you got them off snails.
I am a worrier when it comes to fish, as they are my babies, and my job. So...I will be paying attention to this thread, unless Pufferpunk thinks that I should start my own. Thanks guys! (And sorry for the partial thread jack)

Flutter wrote:Yes, that is what I meant. Puffers seem to LOVE them. I wish we could find live worms here. Live shrimp and especially earthworms are excellent foods to feed a picky or non-eating puffer They're almost always irresistible.
