Default Porky Porcupine Puffer

This is an inquiry from someone else:
How much is an appropriate meal for a porcupine puffer measuring 4" with tail. Right now he eats a cherry stone clam and a sliver of raw shrimp the size of a pencil and 1.5" long. Is this too much, just right or not enough, he always looks like he wants more. I've heard that they can eat three times their weight a day, is this true?

All fishes are constantly eating while they are awake. If you puffer is eating all that then i would stick with that meal. I usually feed my fishes untill I see their belly expand a little. And then let them digest..

The more you feed the more waste they produce.
