Thanks SurWrath, I appreciate knowing that you read my posts -- I stopped posting on that one site due to a personality, but I tried to PM help to a few. Which ferts do you use? Most people report no problems with ferts, but I would caution you to use ones at least with the smaller dosages of copper in them -- and I'm sure that it will be fine. I just feel more comfortable not using them, but that doesn't mean I may not try eventually.

Now, I've seen many advocate feeding of spinach -- but I read somewhere to avoid feeding spinach to reptiles? (I think it was iguanas?) because it inhibits calcium -- I wonder if this would be the same with invertibrates? I wouldn't feed a lot of it at least.

Do you use iodide/iodine? Actually you may not even need to because many ferts actually do have it in there.

And, of course, I like Indian Almond leaves, but by no means is it necessary.

My fav food is Nutrafin Max Spirulina Tablets, because they are 100% vegie. I smash them up a bit so they don't have to fight for the food. I'm thinking of buying some Naturose because I'm pretty sure that will enhance coloration (similar to the Yams).
