#67539 A Little Advice For A Newbie

Posted by MikeA on 20 May 2017 - 11:44 AM

I have moved most of my plants and weeds outside now so this will hopefully help a bit. I weighed her again yesterday and so far she's gone up 7grams since I got her which is almost a month. I read somewhere that they are programmed to eat but she never seemed to eat excess, I'm guessing she has been though. I won't leave her food in with her anymore I will start feeding her 5 times a week to slow the weight gain down now. How little should she eat at this age? As a pet owner I usually aim for just slightly over the typical weight rather then under but I understand this can put pressure on the shell as she's growing and forming. She's looking a lot more settled now and rather then pacing and sleeping she spends most of her time basking, lounging and has a good wonder every so often. I'm wondering if it's too early to let her have a proper wonder outside of her table, or leave her be for another few weeks, just getting her out for a bath, weigh and measure. Thanks for all the tips so far by the way care sheets can only go so far.
