We are feeding Dumbork food pellets and vegetables, sometimes fruit. The vegetables includes carrots and greens (Baguio pechay, lettuce), while the fruit include apple, banana, papaya. He is very active whenever food time is near — he swims to the surface and extends his neck out of the water. The schedule of the feeding is as follows:

8:00am-3 pellets

5:00pm-3 pellets

9:00pm-3 pellets

Fruits and vegetables every weekend.
