Trouble Feeding a HMPK

I have a cute little HMPK named Frederick that I got about a month ago. He's my very first PK and a character to watch and play with.

I'm having a little trouble feeding him though. I feed both my fish Omega One Betta Buffet, so the pellets are relatively small. My VT gets about 3-4 pellets (until his tummy is somewhat round) 2 times per day and that's what I've been feeding Frederick, but I can never tell when he has had enough. His stomach doesn't get that round shape. He looks great, is very active and his fins are awesome, but I don't want to be feeding him too much or too little.

So my question is, how much do you guys feed your PKs?

Thanks :)

Once you have him for awhile you will start noticing that if they've been fed too much then they **** like crazy over the next 18-hrs. That's when you can begin to taper down the feeds.

I give my HMPK three pellets in the morning and three pellets at night! I let him exercise everyday though by putting a mirror in front of him for about three minutes. He always poops when he flares LOL
