This'll be my first thread on the insects page :D later this week I'm going to purchase some Zophobas morio worms to use as feeders for my tarantula, but I'm going to take one out and keep it as a pet. I have no idea how to care for it or feed it, though. I know that for the worms, I need to use fish flakes and a slice of fruit once a week to keep them healthy, and keep them together to prevent pupation. How do I get the other worm to turn into a beetle? And once it does, what do I feed it? What kind of enclosure should I use for it?

with superworms just separate and stop feeding. then they will mature in about 2 weeks from what i have observed
