Local RAOK. Pea Puffer

Yup. Pea puffer to who ever wants to pick him up. Eats ghost shrimp, snails, frozen brine and blood worms!

Eh... There's ways around that. There more females the less aggressive the males will be.

He is the center piece of my 55. I hate to see him go, so if I can find a steady supply of snails I will keep him lol.

well if that is your problem, it is a good thing you are close by.
I've got snails in several tanks. you should also get some blackworms and daphnia.
I've been planning to get a pea puffer but it is lower in my current priorities.
Aluka's idea works well also take the bigger snails out first.
