Just got a Fahaka Puff, curious about eating habits
I have a 72 Gallon Bowfront, I'll need to upgrade soon after getting a Nile Puff (they think he is about 1 year old as he is 5 inches long.
For a year I had 4 Columbian Puffers and a bunch of other fish (15). Just two days ago I traded those back to the fish store as I wanted to get a bigger fish and really wanted to stick with a puffer (if my apartment was bigger I wish I could have just bought another tank but I had to choose, felt like I was selling the other little guys out).
My question is; will this guy just naturally take to frozen/already dead food? I had a some snails and he ate those already but has no/or limited interest is the frozen food sitting right by him. The 4 columbian puffs would come right up to the top and eat from my hand (though thinking back this might not have been immediate). Should I do anything? I have tried frozen brine and blood worms, another food option? Also, I am assuming he will start to come to the top or beg for food but it might take a little more trust if this guy is intellegent.
