Awesome! I finally got my Jack Dempsey, and I fed him a feeder cricket to see if he'd like it. It was similar to your video, but on a smaller scale. I can't wait until he's big enough to eat the big crickets!

Lol ew. Cool but gross.

I couldn't do that. I would have nightmares that crickets would break free and multiply in my house. Imagine like leaving the stove or iron on and going away somewhere. That would be the anxiety I would suffer from everyday if we were keeping crickets in my house. :lol:

Haha...that anxiety is incredibly well founded, actually. I have a tree frog and a toad who eat crickets as their staple. Where I live, we don't have those little tan crickets that get sold as feeders - we have those nasty cave crickets and the black field crickets. Usually I just buy those little cricket keeper cardboard boxes that contain 25-30 crickets, open the little door on it, and put it in the terrarium. The tank has a heavy, tight-fitting lid. Yet somehow, crickets escape. The ones that I feed to my killifish (and now Jack Dempsey) *must* be escapees from the terrarium. I have no clue how they get out.

:( Gross. Lol I knew they would be escape artists.

Whats a cave cricket? Wait... Do I even want to know? I see the black ones you talked about all the time. I often found them in my old house. I don't loath crickets as much as I do spiders, earwigs, silver fish, centipedes, and the list goes on. But I can't stand them if they are in my house or anywhere around me. They are so ugly and creepy.

I had a terrarium with lizards and frogs that ate crickets. I didn't` have a fear of them but it is really annoying to get woken up at four in the morning by a cricket chirping down the hall. I found an awnser though.....CATS. take that stupid crickets!!! ha
