Question by ChrisWF: Worm farm, cricket farm, or convicts for a dovii treat?
Well, I’ve got extra tanks that I want to do something with.
I have convicts in 1, they’re the last batch of convicts I have, but they’re all very weird as they were inbred and probably have the worst outcomes out of any of my breedings I’ve seen. Not likely going to mate these, especially if their strange deformities could get worse.
I was thinking cricket or worm farm.
I’ve had a cricket farm before, it was quite simple. Had it for my turtle. I had hundreds of crickets in no time, and they were super easy to raise. I actually fed them damp pellets that the turtle also ate, as well as various other things they’d like (banana peels and such). Turtle was wild, after it healed I let it go, so I got rid of the crickets.
Years later, I’m thinking about crickets again for my Dovii.
Or maybe worms? But I hear worms can be difficult to maintain b/c you have to balance the PH in the dirt with products you have to buy, maintain moisture and temperature (this will be an indoor tank) and much more.
As strange as it sounded, the crickets NEVER chirped. They’re the brown ones you buy from a pet store (don’t think fish eat the black ones anyway, at least not for fishing).
Never chirped. The tank they were in at the time was a plexiglass tank, no roof to it. But the sides folded over, so I would heard it if they did, but they didn’t…
Hmm I thought you could feed worms rabbit poop (I have a rabbit).
What do you think? Answer below!
