Help. New Amazon Puffer isn’t eating.

Post by AmazonPufferGuy » Sat Jun 22, 2019 7:25 am

I have just got a new Amazon Puffer and had him for 2 days now. I have been preparing for his arrival for months and have a rams horn snail tank set up to produce his food. He’s currently in a 20Gallon Planted but isn’t eating snails I am putting in regardless of size. Does anyone have any tips as to how to get him eating and then how to get him onto snails ASAP?

Thanks in advance

Start him on other foods. Try crushing the snails. Amazons are fish that like the company of others: library/puffers-in-focus/sap/
