I recently got a dwarf puffer two days ago. I have tried to feed him defrosted bloodworms, but he just watches them float by. I was going to try to feed him some snails, but I don't really know what to buy as a feeder snail. I have also noticed that he has been attacking his reflection of the aquarium, is this normal. Sorry for all the questions, but thanks in advance for everyone that helps.

attacking the reflection probably means he is bored. A good feeder snail would be a pond snail which some stores will give you for free or ramshorn snails. and he may not want to eat blood worms or not be hungry.

Make sure you avoid Malaysian trumpet snails; their shells are too hard for puffers, IME

I Want to have a separate tank for breeding snails. Should I be worried about snails over taking my main tank, not the breeding one?
