Puffers hooked on krill

Post by Toolfan » Tue Jul 24, 2018 10:30 pm

Well, I made the mistake of giving my puffers krill. On tank has a gsp and a Toby, the other has a baby fahaka. Since I started giving them krill, they refuse anything else. I’m making some cubes made of bloodworms krill and silverside, to try to fix this. Think it will work? Any other ideas? Should I just not give them krill until they get hungry enough to eat something else?
Thanks for any help.

Yeah, just don't give them any food for 3-4 days, and then they should eat whatever food you give them. I would recommend that you make shell-on shrimp and clams on the half shell their main food.
