Has anyone fed their Dwarf Puffers mealworms, you can get mini ones, or are they too big?

Thanks, I’m feeding them a mix of live food and frozen, so they get a good variety. I’m just looking for something easy to culture, and I’ve done mealworms successfully before. I’ve got a couple of snail tanks set up, but I think it will take a while for them to start to yield.
