hey,
sorry for lkeving so many posts but i need help, this is the first time iv ever had puffers.
anyways, i was wondering if the green spoted puffer fish that i have will eat the whole snail or just a bit of it, and if i should give it normal food as well while the snails are in there. the snails seemed to have died already, and the puffers arent eating them to much. so i dont know what to do

If he doesn't eat the shell with it, crush the snails before to give them to him. He needs to have more than than snails. Try frozen bloodworms and for an occasional snack of frozen brine shrimp.

i have been using frozen brine shrinp as a normal diet, and have given them snails for the first time. but i think the reason the nails died is because my water is brachish, and the snails are not, so i dont think that helped. also do you know ifthere are brachish snails that i could feed to my puffers

What you can do is keep a small container to house your snails until feeding time. feed the snails some algae flakes or lettuce.
