We DID offer you advise, that this tank was not large enough for a single puffer & not to get another one, yet you did anyway??? What are you planning on doing to upgrade to a larger tank NOW? You will eventually need at the very least 230L for them but for now, half that will do if they are still
small.

Thanks for information which are really important for me
There are not very much puffer owners in Turkey
I got wrong information in the begging with your help will find the right solutions
The information to me from different sellers were nearly same that puffer is very easy fish and also in the Local forums you can not find real information
Puffer is different from other fish's so in a short time I will get a bigger tank changing %20 of the water every 2 days
Krill was proposed from the seller
Can I use or try also dried blood worms alternative to shrimp or shall I only use shrimp
Thank you all for your supports
Krill can be fed but not as the only food source as it has been implicated in health problems. Feed a variety of molluscs: cockle, snails, mysis & brine shrimp etc. Bloodworms would go down well but they don’t have any crunch to help wear their teeth down.
