So I looked over and saw my puffer with a large portion of my engineer goby hanging out of his mouth. I know puffers eat smaller fish but the goby is pretty big.he didn't even eat him, just munched on his tail for a while and then let him go, now the goby looks like he'll die soon...
What the heck??

The puffer looks very happy after a meal of fresh Engineer. I think I would net out the goby and put it in a ziplock bag with very little water and put him in the freezer until he starts to freeze. Then I'd chop the remains into little pieces to feed the puffer with later.

I would not get another eel like fish in the future.
