Default Tangelo need a diet and lose weight

It's been a long time since I've went in the forum, with my moving and all it was (and still is a bit) hectic. I started to notice my dear and once skinny Tangelo is getting fatter. He still can get intoo a tight ball, but I feel more fat under his "arms", not yellow fat pocket, but I feel it can turn intoo it don't take action. I don't have his weight chart or the scale un packed yet but I'm sure this is more than a couple of gram. I tried acouple months ago a new food in my mix made locally but it was 14% fat (CSFTCLS light and Innova low fat are 9%). No the mag is almost over I think I'll come back with Royal Cannin (even if it's just 3% less fatty at 11%). I'm not sure what else to do, he wheels and is quite active at night (seeing how he "re-decorate") his cage, I do not give threats a lot. Any suggestions are welcomed.

edit to add: I fee feed him, I usually give him about 2 table spoons wich he almost always finish.

Once you un-pack (Haha sounds familiar im about to move and its a 27 hour drive) the weight chart and the scale write it down see how much of a diffrence it is and just keep an eye on him. I wouldnt worry yet, as it might just because of the move or other reasons that his weight has gotten a little bit more. If he keeps gaining I would maybe try a leaner food and you said he is getting enough exersice so if its not the food it might be a possible tumor, which hedgehogs are prone too. So just keep and eye on it, again, and dont worry too much right now.

Good Luck!
