How often should I feed my few month old corn?
I keep getting mixed messages, I hear every 5 days, but then caresheets on breeders website say 3 days.

i would feed it 1 pink maybe 2 depends how big it is every 5/6 days. 3 days is way to much it doesnt give it time to recover from its last feed!

3 days is far too much imo, barely gives it time to digest!

What/how much are you feeding it?
I just got it Sunday, and they said they fed it last Wesneday, so I was going to feed him 2morrow.

Then I would do that, feed him/her tomorrow with one pink, then leave it 5 or 6 days and offer 1 or 2 pinks again. Check the tank for pooh, if they have been to the toilet then they will no doubt be hungry again.

The ammount is always 1.5 times the width of the body at its thickest. Or multiple smaller items, but i tihnk 1 item is best, just the right size. I need help too, i dont know when i should move oz onto 1 once a week. How old should he be?

Not sure I can help, all mine have been youngsters or adults, although when I first got them, treated them like babies to establisha feeding routine.

How old is your corn?

If he is eating two pinks on a regular basis then, the move too once a week should fairly easy pretty much now.
