Can a 1/2" spiderling be placed in a 16 ounce deli cup at all? Or should you wait until he gets larger? What is the best size to graduate up to a Deli Cup? As for 1/2" slings, what can you feed them besides pinhead crickets?
Im getting these Rubbermaid food containers, 0.5 Cup Container 3" x 3" x 2.6" $2.97 for 2 at walmart tomorrow. I am getting 2 .5-.75" G. Pulchripes Friday i will be putting in them. until they are about 1.5" or so, then putting them in a 16oz deli cup. They can also a cricket split up into pieces.
Go to a gas station that serves hot food and ask for one of those containers that they sell you the side of ranch dressing in. They are about 2.5" wide and 1.5" tall. They will usually just give you one or two, or charge you like a dollar for ten of em. Once it outgrows that, a 16oz container would be good.
And I feed all my little slings chopped up large crickets. If you dice em up, a large cricket can feed 4 or 5 slings at a time.
