o0o0 i can't help with that one sorry, i feed mine blood worm and crickets stuff like that because i have a few lizards,

it should have some sort of guide? wouldn't use a time guide ( like as much as it can eat in 5-10 mins ) as he may not eat.. you could always put a small amount in see how much he eats then remove the rest maybe?

sorry for the unhelpfulness :P
