Pellets are rubbish, either feed them to the live food or chuck. You should concentrate on providing them dusted and gut loaded live foods and a variety of veg.

Food that goes down well (and good for them) are leafy greens such as watercress, rocket, dandelion leaves, spring greens, pak choy, lambs lettuce, basil and mint. Squash is also quite a good food. Avoid feeding foods that are high in oxalates too often (spinach, parsley etc). Useful site > Untitled Document
I've only had them since Weds. One of them has settled in nicely, she likes her live food. Its just Vinnie that's not. Thinking that I will have to get them a new vivarium, as the one that came with them only has one ceramic lamp and the UV lamp in there. Everywhere I have looked tells me that they have to have a lot more than that. Just not sure it has been set up correctly, so that's something I really need to look at.
