Bladder/pond snails will breed like rabbits if food is available. I had a snail tank going for mine. Well I still do but I put some fish in there that I thoughr were too small to eat them. Yeah I was wrong!! I still have snails in the tank just not as much now lol.

I put Scarlet Badis (Dario Dario) in there.
From your description it sounds like Malaysian trumpet snails.
The shell looks like a twisted ice cream cone?

If those are the snails they are kinda hard to eat for the Dwarf puffers as they have trapdoors on their shell plus they burrow in the sand. They are also livebearers so they don't lay eggs but carry their babies in their shells for a little bit.

Yeah, ice cream cone snails well, I don't want them then! I'll see if my botia kubotai fancy them
I'll see about getting me some pond snails then

Lights go off in like 20, Mrs is at home melting Bloodworm for me to try on the puffers...... here's for hoping!
And well sad I'm not there! But hope they take it!!!

Those are not a bad thing Nile. They do a lot of good for the tank mire good then bad. Most of the time when the lights are on they spent their time in the substrate so you won't see them much. Though when the lights are off and its dark try come out looking for food.

Don't be supposed if they don't take the bloodworms at first but lets hope they do!
