MY QUESTION IS what can I do to get him to start eating? I have tried live black worms, brine shrimp, shrimp pellets, and hikari brine shrimp and spirulina cubes. Thanks

the only krill that i've seen is bigger than the DPs. My GSP and Ceylon LOVE krill, but I'd think it's a little too hefty for those little dwarf puffers.

Try live daphnia if you can get it. Or pond snails (tiny, tiny pond snails. The size of poppy seeds.)

Logic is only the beginning of wisdom
