So mine is too big for his age? How much should he be eating? I dont think hes obese, but you can see for yourself as soon as I can get some images online. I cleaned his cage yesterday, and made a couple of minor changes...tonight he was cruising around checking things out. Hes a pretty mellow little guy. He didnt get defensive at all when I moved him in and out of his holding tank. -Of course I am extremely patient and never rush when Im handeling him. I take it really slow and try not to jerk at all or make any sudden movements. I really just enjoy being able to observe him when hes at ease and comfortable in his surroundings. Its one of the coolest feelings in the world.
