I need snails. I have two tank with a dwarf puffer in each. The puffers have done such a good knocking down my snail problems, to the point there are starving.

If someone in the Honolulu area could provide my puffers snails, please PM.

I fed mine live daphnia or live moina. Eventually I gave them to my fav LFS. I was told later to rotate them in the tanks.

Petsmart usually has pond snails in their tanks they will give to u for free. Starts up a small breeding snail tank, any size should do. Let them establish a breeding colony, then start feeding to your puffer. Puffer doesn't need snails every day, maybe just once per week or so. The puffers will eat brine shrimp, blood worms and pretty much any other frozen fish foods.
