I have a runty little royal red VFT that I'm...well not worried, exactly...but concerned about. It doesn't get much to eat, as the traps are small, and the bugs seems to prefer the greener, brighter plants surrounding it. As such, it's growth is almost at a standstill.
So, I figured that the next couple traps that open, I'd like to hand-feed it something really good. Full of buggy nutrients (or comparable). I was thinking of using some bloodworms left over from my last Betta, but I do recall reading that, as far as fish food is concerned, bloodworms are high in fat. I have no idea what that means in regards to a CP.
So I was wondering if there were some other things to try?
Catching stuff is not high on my want-to-do list, and it would be difficult to see, much less capture, anything small enough to give it besides beetles. The only ants we have around are either giant black things about 1/2" long, or teeny little red mite-sized ants.
I want to give it the equivalent of meat and potatoes (hence the title). Something filling, full of energy, and that'll make ya fat!
