But, I have seen them eat frozen and freeze dried shrimp and krill when my puffer was finished eating. I've heard of snails eating dead fish as well, but like most of you here I head count fish daily and notice sick fish quickly and remove to quarantine or as soon as they pass if quarantine is not possible and they do not make it so I can not confirm this.
