Food for Green Spotted Puffer.

New member... In my 55 gallon tank is have 2 fiddler crabs, 3 green spotted puffers (1 is about 4 inches long, named tank) ( other two maybe 2") ,2 Iridescent shark, and 2 some kind of see threw neon colored fish,and plecostomus. When I bought the crab I thought the puffers would eat them, no luck, everything in the tank gets along. I feed frozen bloodworms, dried shrimp,and dried brineshrimp. Snails.They eat just fine but I read that they need other food...can you buy shrimp from a grocery store and feed them?? I live in a small town and closest pet store is 1 hr 30 mins away. I am also in need of snails, and some kind of shrimp. I bought 40 snails the guy said they were brackish got them home puffer ate got full but they all died just shells sitting on gravel..

it really depends if your pufferfish like them or not. you can feed them shell fish from the store but just keep the food in the tank for an hour. after an hour the food will start to rot in your tank, so I recommend removing the food then
