I decided to get experimental with some alternative foods and thought I'd try feeding a cube of beef heart to my S. heros. I picked up a pack of frozen beef heart at the pet store which is usually used to feed fish. They come in individually packed cubes each about the size of a playing dice. Anyhow, I thawed a piece to room temp and left it for my heros in a shallow dish. I left for a couple hours and when I got home the dish was cleaned! It looked as if the pede even licked the bowl! lol! He's now chilling just under his corkbark looking nice and fat. Best of all there's no little slimy skeleton to remove or cricket remains. I still intend to feed occasional small vertibrates but man, it really can't get any easier than this. Not to mention I can store the beef heart for as long as I need in the freezer too.
