I am rearing some dwarf puffer fish to control my snail population. I "trained" them hard only to eat snails and not shrimps.
First, i catch some snails into a holding tank together with the puffers, so they learn to eat snails. Then every nite i release them into my main tank for 30 mins and watching them closely to ensure that they do not eat any shrimps.
Then i will put them back into the holding tank. Do this for 1 month, then i put some shrimps into the holding tank and ensure they are fine after 1 week. Then finally the puffer is release long term into my main tank.
Its working for me but it will take long.
I will post a video soon on this. Do visit my site at Kelvin's Crustaceans Adventure
for my shrimp experience.
