schmike: feeding once a week sounds a bit to extreme, like starving the poor pnt like that.

turtles r the same as fish. they can go without food for a long time n its not necessary to feed them all the time.

so for large pnts, whats the ideal feeding routine like? used to feed every day when it was younger, now no more daily feeding as it produces just too much waste?

In the past every day
Then it was like alternate days
Now once a week. He don't seem very hungry these days plus he lets me know if he is hungry

So eheim 2028 is one option, is there any other brand/model that I can look out for?
Thought I should do some homework before going down to the shop again.
Thx!
