Baby Fahaka Puffer Feeding help!

Post by Mxtoronto » Wed Mar 18, 2020 1:02 am

Hello everyone,

Very new to the puffer hobby. I have a baby Fahaka, maybe 1.5-2inches. I’ve fed him live ghost shrimp and a bunch of snails for the first 2 weeks with me. I’m looking for better feeding options and wanted to know everyone’s opinion. Mind you this is changing times and i’m not sure if stores will continue to get shipments of snails or shrimp.

Anyways, I’ve tried sun dried red shrimp for turtles but he doesn’t take to them. Would it be okay to feed him the large super worms? Or would it be wise to maybe keep a bunch of snails in an alternate tank so they can breed? I’m just worried I won’t be able to feed the little guy now.
