Good idea to get another tank and breed snails.

Are they dwarf puffers or green spotteed puffers? Dwarf puffers are freshwater fish.

Puffers are often not keen on flake food. thy like a variety of foods. Frozen or live bloodworm or brineshrimp are usually enjoyed and they also love to at snails. If they are dwarf puffers then I would suggest pond snails a they are small and their shells are a bit softer for the tiny fish to be able to bite through them.

dwarfs

Well it said dwarf on the tank... it's funny though, the other one i bought 4 months ago(from PetSmart) is a yellow-greenish color with black spots on top, and these are brownish (tiny) with black spots... the other supposed dwarf is 2" plus now... i feed my other one dried blood worms, but they just float, and he comes to the top to get them. these new little guys seem to like the bottom of the tank, and haven't found the bloodworms yet

Freshwater dwarf puffers never exceed 1.5". The first puffer you bought at Petsmart may be a Green Spotted puffer (brackish, up to 6.5") or a South American puffer (freshwater, up to 3"). True dwarf puffers (Carinotetraodon travancoricus) can be several shades of yellow/brown, and will often "change color" depending on there mood. Also, my male dwarf is a lot brighter than my female.

Here's a great link for helping determine what kind of puffer you have. It has great pics and plenty of info on freshwater and brackish puffer.
