Not just you.... Ive got 2 new baby corns - 1 fed the other one wont.... although she did have a bite at it this evening and split its guts open, then left it again and spilt all her water everywhere!

So I gave her clean paper in a clean tub (inside the faunarium) and put the remains of the pinkie in there with her..... so fingers crossed for both of us!

boiling water isn't advised though as it would cook the prey..
