Would it be fine to feed freeze dried brine shrimp as a daily diet? Or should I stick to it as a once a week thing? He loves the brine shrimp and picks at his pellets.
I put just enough to split between him n the shrimp....and well, he became a piggy.

He's so cute!! I love the picture where he's trying to avoid the thermometer.

They can get addicted to brine shrimp/blood worms and start refusing their pellets, lol. So be careful. I'd stick to once a week, especially because freeze dried stuff too frequently can cause constipation. :o

I do believe I saw him a bit inactive today. Should I have him fast tomorrow?

I don't see any pine coning. It looks like his tummy has gone down.
