    Some it will, some it won't.. I would stick with 5 per meal, 8 tops.. you can judge with your guy how he handles it. I feed mine throughout the day, rather than once or twice.

    Yep.. some get that much some days.. not every day though - I usually will feed them pellets twice a day (around 10 or so) along with frozen or homemade or even live foods. But when I'm not conditioning them, or trying to get some size on them I'll toss in anywhere from 8 - 20 total.. they are big piggies at times. Have not had any issues with SBD, bloating or constipation. Like I said, it's not daily they get that much.. some days they do, other days they get less. The breeders tend to get more, as I keep them constantly conditioned almost.. that way I can set up a spawn whenever I want. Set up a breeding tank last night, and right now have eggs already from the pair I placed in because she was ready. Pets tend to get less though, closer to the 8-12 a day mark.

    5 is fine :) Mine get anywhere from 8 - 20 a day (when fed pellets).. but they have been getting that for a couple years, etc and I split it up between lots of meals throughout the day. But over all, 5 a day is fine to feed.. it's enough to keep him from starving and it's enough to give him energy :) If you want, give him 5 in the morning and 2-3 at night... but otherwise, don't worry about it. Like I said, everyone has their own ways and it all depends upon each fish.

    Maybe the workers were feeding the bettas those pellets? I dunno...

    I bought mine from "nuttypetsuppliesllc". In your thread, you thought employees or whoever there opened the little freshness seal, right?

    You could but bread has been proven time and time again to help with that transition. As they get use to solid foods crush up lab block into smaller pieces and offer them up to the baby. Also with a younger mouse know how to gender. Males will never have nipples and females always will even as newborns. It is the easiest way to tell genders apart since baby males can tuck up their testies and appear female.

    Get kitten formula to feed it an an eyedropper. As you wean it fill up a cap with the milk formula and add a chunk of bread, just enough to make it soggy. This makes it soft for baby to eat and the milk will entice it to munch the bread. Babies need to be warm so a heating pad against the cage and a tissuebox stuffed with tissue will make a comfortable next.

    How young is it? If it's already weaned I would say go for it. If it's younger it will bound to you faster and have a stronger bond. Also makes them easier to train. If they are still nursing it can be tricky.

    I would get a mouse from either a shelter or a breeder but if you don't have either find a petsmart that only carries males. Petco carries males and females and the staff are horrid at telling genders. Nothing worse than taking home a pregnant female they told you was male.
