lol, although they are small in size, these guys are like dogs...will keep begging! [especially for they're favorite]

twice a day if pellets I hear 2-4 x2 a day. Flakes small pitch, or 2-3 flakes x2 a day [flakes being size of pinky nail]. Substitute bloodworms or brine shrimp [whichever he prefers] 2-3 days a week in replace of normal food [like us eating at McDonnalds, not the healthiest to eat everyday]

I feed mine 2 pellets, twice a day and they get freeze-dried bloodworms or brine shrimp as a treat once a week.
