The amount depends on their appetite at any given time, but since they're pretty small I'll bet a 2-3 month old can go through a lot at once. Don't be surprised if they can put away 20-30+ at a sitting, but this will vary. Sometimes they eat too quickly and don't chew them, so they pass through undigested. Not harmful, but kind of a waste so look out for that. You can hand feed them to slow down their eating and encourage more chewing, but that can be time consuming.

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
