    Usually between 3-5 times a week. They can survive with less, but they need a lot of food to thrive.

    You can, but I would also feed them larger foods. They can easily eat large PE mysis shrimp and pieces of meat.

    He picked it up by the skeleton, and didn't even feed it, lol. NOT a very good example.

    That's more or less what I do, except mine is a long tube made of plastic. I bent the end at an angle to get into tight spaces.
