so far mine have never been off there food they do prefer some things to others so a little variety may help mine seem to enjoy attacking anything thats alive almost any small animals will be taken if aquatic foods are difficult to obtain try some terrestrial ones fruit fly maggots are easy to raise and are taken eagerly(they do a crazy dance as they drown..they cant resist )

I'm ready for the pressure.

I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

If by 'live food' you mean the bloodworm in clear plastic bags filled with water i see at my LFS then that might be the root of your problem. Filthy beasts usually raised in poor condition imo, prone to disease and parasites, i would never put them in my tank, frozen all the way.

there's a storm a coming........

by frozen you mean dead which kind of defeats the object of live food all my fish eat frozen food but for the puffers its got to be wriggling my lfs raise them in the filter systems of the koi ponds ive never had any problems other than supply i trying to find somewere nearby that sells whiteworms which may be a more reliable source of food

ps how do you quote what someone else has said?
