Yeah, I thought about live blackworms, but I cant find them anywhere!!
I am using the Hikari Bio-Pure Frozen Bloodworms. They love them, so I will keep giving it to them. I am currently planning on feeding them once a day, I skipped today since they too stubbed their nose at the brine shrimp and tubifex worms. They eat snails when ever they want, I keep the snails stocked in the tank with about 25 of them at any given time... they have even managed to lay eggs. I also have well over 100 in my 29g I pull from as needed for the puffs.
Mine did the SAME thing with the other frozen food. Any other frozen food you have tried with success? The only others I can think of that I know I can find is krill, mysis shrimp, and daphnia.
I know the brine shrimp doesnt have the nutritional value they need, but I thought they might eat it every once in a while. My fish in my 29g tank is LOVING that the DPs wont eat the other frozen foods! LOL
Any other puffer tips you might have???
