Sausage links are fine.
He shouldn't have teeth issues like some other species.

I'd still recommend you include snails in the diet even though PufferPunk is of course, correct, that they don't tend to have dental issues like some other puffer species. I feed mine ramshorns about the size of their eyes at least once or twice a week. They LOVE them. It's their favorite food, all 7 of them.

I have never had an ambush Predator eat a snail.
