good stuff bri-id give him a basic diet at this age of king mealworms,crickets,roaches,earthworms and hoppers-all gut loaded and dusted with calcium and every feed and twice a week with nutrobol(not on consecutive days).as at this age it all goes into growth you can pretty much feed him every day. id only give him a rodent once a week and thats it-no fish, nothing.

cheers Dan
as you say he will only be getting one rodent a week now no fish etc, i was well happy this morning to see him chase crickets, he didnt eat many and hasnt really touched his mealworms but at least hes eating. i guess he knows weather or not hes hungry and will eat if he is. a step in the right direction so im well happy.
