I just got some of these puffers and was curious if Whole baby Freeze Dried shrimp would be good to feed them since I forgot to buy the frozen brine shrimp.

Also are there any meats or cooked foods they would eat?


Thanks,

Using freeze dried food isn't a good idea , Using dry freeze dried foods can cause health issues and can lead to death, much like feeding uncooked rice to birds.
I would feed them frozen bloodworms as a staple diet. Mine currently dont eat frozen so eat live bloodworms, im training them to eat frozen bloodworms as many do.
Also brine shrimp are not a good diet for dwarf puffers , they dont have the correct nutrients in turn this will shorten their life.
Sorry for rambling on!
I wanna see picys !:)

Mine are on a primary diet of frozen bloodworms, I also give them live snails daily and frozen brine shrimp every once in a while.
