  • [Schedule] Salmons are growing so fast!!

    My salmons are getting big, fast, or at least it seems like it. They look awesome. I have been feeding them every 5 days, sometimes 6 days if They look a little bloated still. Just wondering if anyone else feeds there baby snakes this often?

    The most I will feed my babies is every 5 days. Any more than that is power feeding, but I think every 5 days is fine if you want them to reach breeding size faster. I mostly do this with males. As long as the prey is the right size and they have proper temps to digest a meal every 5 days I don't see any harm in it. Once they reach 10-12 months of age I go to every 7-10 days. You will get mixed opinions on this but that's just my .02

        i dont feed anymore than once every 7 days i think 5 days is way to soon IMO and once they are over a year you should spread it out to 7-10 days

          Ditto, every 7 days here, 5 seems way to soon for mine to digest and be able to move around, clean, etc... after 18 months i move to every 10-14 days depending on size of food i can in the freezer.
