i have always wanted a Canthigaster Jactator for ever and i just realized how will i get food for it. then i thought i have freshwater snails in a few of my tanks i could breed them for a few years then i can easily have enough. im only 13 so im not getting a saltwater tank any time soon but when i do these are gonna be my first fish.

They will eat them, but you should be careful how many you put in at a time, because in saltwater the snails will die off quickly and foul your tank.

I also wouldnt use them for anymore than a treat food, using other saltwater specific foods as a staple.

Puffers will eat all kinds of foods and its best to feed them a variety of meaty foods like shrimp, fish, clams, etc., along with that some vegetable matter, to give them other necessary nutrients. Its also a good idea to give them some hard shelled crabs, mussels, and shellfish in their diet to wear down their teeth.

Puffers are somewhat aggressive and you should only keep one per tank. They will eat smaller fishes, so they should'nt be kept with any delicate or slow-moving species.
