how cute is that fish!!!!! my lfs had loads in at the weekend, they were in the same tank as many other fish this is why i thought its possible to get away with it. but nevermind :( will need a new tank!!!
Just a quick note--I don't believe dwarf puffers actually have beaks, all the other ones do but not the dwarfs. I have never actually been able to entice my dwarf puffer to eat any snails, only bloodworms and brine shrimp. By the way, he is kept in a well planted community tank with many other fish, no fin nipping. As long as the other fish are reasonably quick, they should be alright to be kept with other fish.
Mine ravage any small snails I put into their tank. The life expectancy of a malaysian trumpet snail added to my puffer tank is less than 2 minutes. The only thing they eat quicker is the blood worms. They also accept brine shrimp though not very eagerly.
