Am I feeding my puffers often enough?

I have 4 F8 puffers about 2 inches long (Brackish set up) whom I feed every other day on 2 blocks of various frozen foods (Brine Shrimp, Mussel, Blood Worm, Krill, Prawn, frozen thawed cockles etc) Is this often enough? They eat all the food in about 30 seconds

are you sure it is all? Keep an eye on the water quality especially the nitrates as the food can foul the water pretty quickly.

Typically they are fed once daily until the bellies are slightly rounded with one or 2 days off.




If you think I am too abrasive there is a little triangle icon in the bottom left of your screen to "report post".
