HAHA! OMG! I love them!!! Snarky little buggers when they want to be, lol... it's a really nice video, too - I wish I had a cam that could give as clear a recording as that. They're so small - I KNOW they're tiny, but they somehow don't SEEM as small as they are when you look at them that way. In comparison to the heater - you see it. But otherwise. . . just funny with no show of scale.

I think you're right - there IS no advantage to feeding frozen. Most foods lose some nutritional content in the freezing, I imagine worms and shrimp would be included in that. Sadly. . . we don't all have lovely trustworthy shops like you do. STILL jealous that you get to shop at maidenhead! My crappy LFS - the ONLY LFS I have access to (opposed to chain shops) is where I got my dwarf loaches, and if you know THAT story, you'd understand why I'd never buy live (or dead) foods from them, lol. They only carry live Brine, anyway. . .

As for the video - good call, Nile - I DO remember at some point in the long-faded past setting something on my profile in YouTube that allows links to embed. Perhaps you and John don't have that turned on? *shrugs* It's the oddest thing! I'm sure you'll both figure it out eventually.

Thanks for the video... I really love these guys!

You know what i think the key is? NOT being logged in to youtube.......
thats the ONLY difference in the 2 postings......
This forum has auto embed.....so maybe its disabled by being logged into a YT account!?!?

GOD KNOWS!
And i know......i LOVES IT. tomorrow will be snails at midday, so ill try and get more videos up now They like them......circling them before going in for the kill!

tried researching anything they could 'hunt' nothing. maybe shrimp.......but its hard to find any small enough!!!

Live foods are best and if getting them isn't a problem then they are definitely better to feed. I know for some ppl this is an issue. It was for me awhile back. Since then a LFS started carrying live blackworms as I kept bugging them for them. LoL

If you are keeping Blackworms in the frig they can last several weeks BUT changing the water every day or two is a must or else the water gets really nasty! Plus it will end up killing the blackworms faster.

Live bloodworms??? Yeah sorry no clue but I would imagine it would be much along the lines as I said for the blackworms.

That is so cute how they just slurp them up! And when two went for the same worm and ended up 'kissing', that was freakin' adorable. Those worms look huge compared to them! How many do you feed them?

And I'm with Ches, so jealous that you have such a great LFS! Mine don't even carry live food, ;(

Yeah the LFS is really good! Though i can think of 4 that carry live fod permanently around me, just maidenhead is the best. I dont know why all yours dont?!?!

Theres no set amount, i watch there bellies and try to individually make sure they are all getting enough. Like the vid, they were all pretty much full except that one......he's the one eaating the most snails in the vid below though.....must have been hungry after ignoring them! silly boy!
