    Anybody have any ideas for infant formula instead of milk. RAM mentioned the easily digestable thing so I'm thinking the formula would work because it is made to be broken down by even simpler digestive systems and has massive protteins in it. I'll actually read the can and see what it is compared to cows milk. Maybe I'll try it. I hate to experiment but I have pitchers too tiny to try to get forceps or something in to even try to feed them.

    It makes sense by the idea of the milk thing. Since formula is made to be used by life forms who's digestive system is not capable of cows milk yet. It is fortified with everything and their mom. To boot it is powder making it easier to due small quantities, however formula only last for 48 before spoiling with or without refrigeration. I'll have to keep an eye on this. I used it in my bical. I'll keep posted on this.

    Well after 7 days it has not spoiled in the pither or caused any harm. I think I have boosted growth, a pitcher that should have taken a week to open opened in 2 days and is significantly larger than the pither I put the formula in.
    However it is a bical which grows like a weed.

    That's what one company says about their koi pellets.

    Koi are a fish, in case that's the part you're not familiar with. Think really, really big goldfish.

    I just used some of this 90% protein powder vanilla stuff that has 17 grams of protein 1 gram of fat 0 grams of carbs 180 mela grams of sodium and 25 melagrams of potasium per 2 tablespoons. I took a teaspoon of water and added enough powder to the water to make it look like infant formula then I loaded it into a small hypedermic needle(the type they use for insulin) and added 10ccs to a pitcher on my N.rafesiana and N.ventricosa. I`ll let you guys know how this works. Anybody think this will work well?
