    Okay... just making sure there isn't anything missing from my list of foods for the straws.

    Earthworm poop
    Coconut
    Papaya leaves
    Red clover
    Krill
    Pearl Barley

    Those are the main things they get every day... I also feed them other dried fruits every few days and some other foods from time to time... is there anything I'm missing?

    Anything dark or brightly colored. So you can feed spinach, parsley (fresh), cilantro (fresh), romaine lettuce, most bright fruits like blackberries, raspberries, etc. Shrimp and plankton along with the krill, spirulina powder and other seaweeds/algae, and flowers like cornflower, blue malva, calendula, sunflower petals, etc.

    Edited to add: Oak leaves and bark, maple leaves and bark too.
