Food, frequency, and quantity


Sep 6, 2022
Einstein and his new dining room. I’m trying to figure out his appetite. When I initially put him in the tank, had a lot of hermits and snails. He devoured those quickly. Now I need to figure out how much he wants to eat or needs to eat. After posting lesson started reading and there’s a lot of information here so I’ll do some research.

I feed mine with a piece of thawed shrimp twice a day, the size between the end of an eye to the other. I wait for it to finish eating and he will throw away the leftovers, I grab them out of the tank immediatly with tweezers (could be rests of venom in them) to avoid excess of nutrients in water. I know my answere may be late but I think this could help others reading this thread :smile:. I hope Einstein is doing well!
