PostSubject: Cricket Questions from a Newbie!   10/7/2010, 7:08 pm

I've never had a reptile or anything before so this is new!
My turtles eat greens, carrots, and pellets.

i found this Flucker's Orange Cube Complete Cricket Diet stuff at the pet store
it says its food, water, vitamins, and Spiruluna on the front.
i currently have 15 small crickets [i didnt think they would be so small]
i gave them one cube that fits in the top of a pepsi bottle top i thoroughly cleaned
it says let them eat for 24hrs before feeding
i figured one would be enough

is this product good?
or should i get like fluckers water gel stuff adn give them fresh stuff from the grocery store?

also these crickets are smaller than i thought they'd be. how many should i give him/her?



i recycled the container my scorp was in when i bought him lol

I use the same stuff. It works fine.

Depends on your number of crickets, as the stuff dry's out pretty good.

I keep 8 large crickets in my box, usually give 1 cube (lasts about 5 days) and 24 hours before feeding, I remove the first cube and add 1 more (to gutload, fresh cube). That cube (given 24 hours before) then becomes my 5 day cube... and repeats ad nasuem

Never had a problem with it.

+1
if i feel like being creative,
ill grab some cheerios, baby food, and a potato wedge for mine that last longer than 30 hours...
just keep it a good distance from the water bowl (i learned that lesson the hard way, it was gross)
but all that is what i use to gut load for maximum protein...

im gonna end up doing research soon and see if there isnt anything better packed with protein
