    Is there any artificial food such as fish pellets that you can feed VFTs? Recently all the small bugs in my yard and house either disappeared or grew into giant monster bugs too big for even my nephs. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_n_32.gif[/img]
    Some random words.

    pellets made for bettas should work as they are bug based i believe.

    "dead" things, including dead insects and fishfood, when fed to a dionaea, wont work. if you want them to be digested, you must massage the traps several times to stimulate the assimilation process.

    I got those tongs/forceps in a kit of 3 or 4 aquarium planting/landscaping tools, the kit ran me about $40.
    I would imagine you could get just the tongs for much less from a reptile shop. Just ask to see a selection of some small tipped or pointed feeding tongs. Also, any medical/scientific supplier online should have a selection of sizes to choose from.

    My plants this year are full to the brim with wasps ,flys, bugs and the odd hornet but i would like to here about what sort of fish food (pellets or flake) is best for neps(goodness and how easily it is obsorbed). As my collection grows so does the demand for prey.

    Bye for now Julian

    Someone mentioned Betta pellets (rattler??) on the last page...
    Would they work?? A single canister tends to outlast my fish every time....
    would one grind them up a bit
    I only just got a Nep with pitchers and figure it'll need to eat soon....
