Red Runners & gut-load

Can I gut-load red-runners with practically anything...?
I am using a variety of veggies for them.
It was a formulation for my bearded dragon but I decided to feed the Red-Runners because Kameo is sleeping.

And any practical advice for keeping these would be great.
I bought more thinking they would live; Really cheap feeders online.
I want to keep them alive as long as possible.
I'm trying to keep them sorta small...

All assuming they are similar to Dubias:

I'd stick to gut-loading them with things you would want Kameo to eat as long as we are not talking about breeding them. Dubias breed really well if you feed them oranges but you do not want your dragon to eat those.

They should be really easy to keep alive. Just take a plastic container and put some egg crates in. Make sure it has plenty ventilation and feed them every couple of days with greens and oats.

I might add rolled oats or some dried oranges with the blend I already have.:blob5:

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
