Hi,

I have a 4 inch fahaka but I'm not sure which type of snails I should get for him...there are those very very small snails with shells like pointed cones and there are those big gold inca or black mystery snails....which one should I feed him with??.....I want to keep his teeth trimmed but crayfish are just way too big for him rite now...

My spotted puffers seem to like small mystery and ramshorn snails.But you'll find these can get to be expensive so you can als feed it whole shrimp or tail on shrimp from the store.

The spiral snails are Malaysian Trumpet Snails, usually their shells are too hard. Try ramshorn snails: they multiply rapidly and are cheap.
