I think Clovis and I are playing a game with his pellets. He gets a quarter cup of pellets at around 7:30 every night, and when I put him to bed at around 10:30 there are usually a few left at the bottom of the bowl. On weekends I stay up later so by the time I tuck him in they are gone. I can't bring myself to put him to bed with nothing in his little crock so I always sprinkle in a few more.
Since his issue with cecotropes, I have been very strict about the amount. I decided to cut back just a bit so that if he does eat them all I don't worry about adding a few more when I put him to bed. Now, I'm convinced he makes a point of gobbling them all up every night before bedtime because he knows he'll get some more. He must think he's fooling me. But since I'm not giving him the whole quarter cup to begin with, I'm pretty sure I've got him fooled.
