So I just ordered 500 superworms. I've been reading on how to care from them. This is what I've gathered so far

Can be kept at room temperature.
I can use the granulated (I think that's the name) oats at the grocery store for a substrate
Need a slice of fruit or vegetable for water
Maybe some egg cartons?
And I'm going to be using a 5 gallon spare tank my sister had to keep them in

What should I do for "gut loading"? I can't do much besides the slice of fruit or vegetable and the oats. Low on allowance money. :)

I keep mine in a plastic bin the size of a shoebox in the basement. I put a few inches of chow on the bottom. I get the chow from Lindasgonebuggie. Most places that sell the worms will have a chow/bedding available too and it's cheap. You could probably make your own out of oat/grain too but I haven't done that. I put a couple of toilet paper tubes on top of the bedding for them to crawl around on. I don't bother with a top because they can't crawl the sides unless they become beetles. Veg scraps like the stems of greens or some carrot slices are enough for them to hydrate from. I just replace them with fresh veg scraps once they dry out every few days. They're otherwise pretty hands off.

Swordtail has been doing a whole lot of "Lizard yoga" lately
Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
Please help. My beardie is my baby and I am worried she may be egg bound but I can't tell. She is over 2 yrs old and has never laid an egg. She has been swollen for two days and can't tell if she may be impacted or egg bound. Please help.
I'm still looking to adopt. I live near Homerville Georgia.
