Look at him before feeding in the morning.
Later look at his belly after feeding. It should be fatter.
When you feed again, is his belly still fat or is it thin like before he ate in the morning. Thin means he has digested his food and can take more per feeding.
BTW, after feeding my fry often looks as if they swallowed a marble. BUT REMEMBER: I don't feed pellets and don't know their effect. My food (except shrimp) are fairly easy to digest.
