While young, I feed when hungry. Mine have hugely varying appetites. I have 2 the same age (little over a yr) and one eats 5 lbs/2 weeks and the other 0.5 lbs/month. As long as the length is still in the exponential stage I don't worry much about caloric restriction. For a male a 3'X6' enclosure should be a suitable adult enclosure. You probably have a good 1.5 yrs. in the 75 gallon--but I don't know your snake. Genetics greatly determines growth rate AND appetite, they kind of go hand-in-hand. I don't under feed to slow growth, as I stay ahead of the housing requirements. Did I mention---I LOVE retics!!!
