lol...no they eat it.. its what they need.. any bran/wheet/to an extent oats, fish flakes are ok but smelly and skanky..

i tired them with crackers the other night [jacobs cream crackers u know] but i hurt myself trying to crush them so wasnt worth it lol.

i keep morio/mealies the same way but in smaller tubs with more wheatabix and less veg.

For crix I use bug grub and fish flakes for food and bug gel for moisture. Bug grub for calcium and vits and fish flakes for protein. For hoppers same food but savoy cabbage for moisture. I keep my livefood in the large flat faunariums as I've got a fair few mouths to feed :)

Believe it or not I got an "official warning"on an American forum for saying "damned" :werd: .

I use the bug grub in the bags from livefoodsdirect as its meant to be gutloaded already then chuck in some pak choi or chinese leaf for the insects to nibble on. Feeding time I put some nutrobal on 2-3 times a week for the dragons and every time for the monitor.
