Crush pellets up, I would suggest one of the better brands so you know you are feeding it a good diet. NLS or Omega One, I take some pellets and add like 2-3 freeze dried blood worms and crush it all up in a sandwich bag then feed little at a time. I Feed twice maybe 3 times a day depending on how much i feed. I use a feeding wand (small zip tie) so i can see how much im giving at a time. And I also give my babies and adults frozen brine shrimp, all my fish love it.

I just crush up a weeks worth so i dont have to keep crushing the pellets and making a mess. Even though they are small i have a hard time doing one at a time. Thats just me though. All you need is the water conditioner to make tap water safe

i have 5 of them, and they have been growing like weeds. all i do is crush the pellets (i have a mortar and pestle) and give them cut up bloodworms appropriately sized for their little mouths and of course frozen brine shrimp - again small ones. You will have such fun watching him/her grow.

I crushed up pellets and bloodworms for Koshiro. Its great watching them grow up, I know a lot of people are really upset that people buy them, but if you and me hadn't adopted them, then they might end up in crap conditions.

But you seem to think like me, let the fat cats have their $2 bucks, quality of life matters for these babies.

I put mine in a zip bag and smashed them with a hammer (learned this after I got shot with pellet debris from crushing them with a spoon)
