This new diet I put him on (blood worms, feeder fish, crickets, brand flake foods, and mealy worms) has really brought out his patterns and made him more distinct, but i may be having to get rid of a few tanks to keep this guy, his meal bill is out the window and I can't keep up with my other tanks at this cost.

you dont have to feed him crickets, meal worms and feeder fish. Mine lived fine on fish food and some prawn i got from the supermarket very cheap. I also gave them bloodworms twice a week.

Your providing them with a very good diet but if its to expensive they can thrive off frozen foods and fish foods.

You could always just feed them crickets as a treat every 2-3 weeks.

Don't be lazy! Get out those chopsticks and start catching some flie for him Smiley

Seriously, thuogh, how expensive could live crickets be???

The sad thing is that if I'm right, I'll never be able to rub it in.

It depends on where you live/where you get them from. My sister buys hers (she has a pink tarantula) because her cats get into her cricket home, and they cost 5 cents apiece. In the spring/summer you can catch your own, but it's all frozen here right now so you can't find any.
