green spotted puffer issues

hey everybody. for my first post i think i should ask about my new 2in puffer. i have a few things and need a little help cause i'm used to big hardy fish (cichlids).
anyways, so if i put a lot of snails in the tank with him will he eat till he dies od is he smart enough to stop?

also he's been hanging out on the bottom of the tank. when i come into the room and turn on the lights he become active but he kinda reminds me of a pouting oscar. anyways why is he doing that? is it lighting or diet? (i feed him mainly snails with a shrimp every few days)

and any other advice would be super cool

Welcome to the forum! :D

Some puffers will eat themselves to death - keep a close eye on his feeding habits. What size tank is he in? What's the salinity? How long have you had him? My DP took a month or two to warm up to me. He's very friendly now, but was a real shy little dude for a long while. He may just need time to adjust (assuming he's new).
