Hi all,
So yesterday I purchased an adorable little Amazon puffer from Aquariums West. I'm trying to figure out why the only behavior this fish has exhibited since being introduced to my tank is swimming up and down on a patch of glass on the back of my tank. I know puffers are known to do this sometimes, but this is all the fish has done to the point of ignoring a feeding of frozen brine shrimp.
Thanks!

Just re-read what you wrote up top and am sorry for missing a point. You feed your puffer frozen brine shrimp? If that is all your feeding then that is most likely why he is not eating. They need to have a varied diet and have crunchy things like ramshorn snails, if not fed this their beaks will overgrow and they won't be able to eat. How big is your guy? I guarantee you throw some snails in the tank and he will eat them.
