Quick question for everyone. I have two baby red bellies and i've been feeding them pretty good. I'm just curious, and I'm pretty sure I have it right, but do their red bellies show better when they eat a lot and their guts get full? I've noticed after they eat a healthy amount of food that their stomach gets red on the bottom. I'm hoping this is just how their bellies show up and they're not bleeding internally from overfeeding :D Cuz that would be a whoops on my part. Any comments would be appreciated. Thanks. Oh yeah, they're an inch long. And eating like machines.

Welcome to the board ... i would recomend that you get another red for them... keeping 2 will cause the stronger one to pick on the weaker one most likly
colours can thrive in your RBP's if they feel satisfyed, or are happy ... usually giving them a nice meal makes them happy, so to answer your question in a way "yes" this is normal, but also many other possible factors. More liky what i have mentioned is the case though :D

don't worry about overfeeding, the only problem is bad water quailty, so if you regularly do water changes you should be fine.

i dont like overfeeding it makes them lazy and is detrimental to water conditions ,when young upto @ 5'' twice a day but not full feeds and after 5'' one full feed every other day ,it does make them look for food and be more active ,also makes sure all food in tank is eaten ,always feed at @ same time each feed .each to their own really though
