I have a RES that\'s almost 4 in. long. He is growing rapidly and is always wanting food, and I\'m not sure how much to give him or how often. I don\'t know how old he is, but he\'s probably somewhere between 9 months and 15 months. How much should I feed him?

I feed mine once a day, but I give them enough to fill them both up, they will beg whether they are hungry or not so don\'t give in, they are tricky, they will train you to feed them every time they beg for food, don\'t let them:D:D

that\'s a question that doesn\'t really have an answer..feed him as much as u think he needs as long as he doesn\'t get overweight..i don\'t stick to the \"once a day, once every other day..\" things cz i split the quantity i feed to my babies into 2 meals (which could be one meal instead)..u can keep floating leaves with him so when he gets hungry he\'ll find something to eat and in that way u\'ll never feel guilty:D
