I was told that DPs teeth don't grow fast and LFS people said that I probably won't have to file them down or such.

As far as DPs and snails go though, most people, from my research and talk, say that DPs simply suck the snail out of the shell...they don't actually chew it. So I'm not so sure if snails are actually helping the DP. For other, larger puffers snails are almost a requirement.

Got many snails for my puffer from the New World Aquarium on the 38th and 3rd in the city a while back.

if you have a consistent need for them, when you find some, dont feed them all of them and start a breeding colony!
