I only feed my slings once a week. Usually a small dubia roach or a meal worm. I used to feed them twice a week, but as the sling numbers grew this became a burden. Once a week is just fine.I'm thinking of getting me a couple of slings (approx. 1 inch G.rosea and B.vagans), and I'm in the research-prosess now, and I was curious on how often to feed them. What routines have you guys/girls in here have on this?
That is what i do, all of my slings are now in pre-molt. My n.chromatus just molted this mornin, his last molt was less than a month ago.It all actually depends, if you want them to grow fast, then power feed them. Power feeding them is feeding the slings alot, like every other day. If you want them to grow normally(which is slow for G.rosea) then feed them once or twice a week.
Note: Powerfeeding shortens the Ts lifespan. Not by much though, and both those species live long anyway.
Depends on the size of food you intend to feed. For instance, if you feed fully winged adult crix, 1 will feed a 1 inch sling for a good 2 weeks, whereas a smaller "medium" sized cricket can be fed once or twice a week. Regardless of what you hear, you cant overfeed one. If that was the case I would probably have killed nearly every T I have ever raised. When they have had enough they will stop. So feed awayI was curious on how often to feed them. What routines have you guys/girls in here have on this?
