How old is Inky? Mediums will probably be fine - and yes they are a great staple feeder for Inky- feed her as many as she can eat - if she starts to gobble them down really fast dont feed as many at a time - when they do this the larvae will come out undigested - use them as salad lures - add them to the tops of her salads like 20 at a time they are small so I would add another staple feeder crickets or dubia roaches - shes going to go thru alot of the BSFL / nutrigrubs - the roaches / crickets will fill her up and you need to dust one of those insects w/ your calcium D3 - here is a good bowl to use for her and the BSFL https://www.amazon.com/MACGOAL-Rept...uGQB&pd_rd_wg=tLkwE&ref_=pd_gw_ci_mcx_mr_hp_d
you only need to dust your insects at one feeding lightly coated 5 x per week and vitamins w/ beta carotene 2 x per week once per feeding lightly coated

Ok I understand+ you can use your dubias to lure her to the bowl - but she should be getting her calcium d 3 5 x per week lightly coated one time per feeding- are you using a long tube uvb?

Are you using the fixture that says nanotech on the outside of the reflector? If so, that's a pretty good fixture. You may not need to change anything if you have a good UVB bulb for the fixture. Is this the case? Or am I misunderstanding what you're using? If you can post a photo of your setup, it might be helpful.

I think it's good, because Inky could eat a wide range of live food such as crickets, mealworms and kingworms; vegetables such as sweet potato and pepper and leafy greens such as kale and parsley. Well, I know also information, they can also eat limited amounts of fruit.

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
