I've been feeding him a fuzzy once every 4 days, but I've ordered some rat pinkies because they're a bit larger and I've heard they're more nutritious, and I think he's ready to move up to something bigger (if I can get him to eat, lol). I haven't been able to get him to eat more than one fuzzy at a time. Tank is a 10 gallon, UTH w/ warm side 80-85, hides on both sides. He has water at all times.

When I bought him in March '01, the breeder explained that he was brumated because he stopped eating, and showed me the size difference between him and his brother (already sold), who had not stopped eating and not been brumated--quite a difference! I do want to emphasize that he has grown, but slowly, and he doesn't look out of proportion to the other rosies I've seen--he's just small. At his thickest part, he's probably the diameter of a quarter. If anyone has any ideas to entice him to eat more, I'd like to hear them, but I've tried pretty much everything. If he's not interested, he's not interested.

: Jeannie,definately sounds like he's on the light side.You might try feeding more often while he is eating.Can you describe your setup,temps,and feeding schedule and the size of the meal.
