    I'm looking into making some sort of basic kibble or two that I could feed every night and supplement with various fresh foods. What I need to know is what would need to be in it so that if I ever ran out of time to add fresh foods, they wouldn't be missing any key nutrients. Like a protien source, a calcium source, nuts, etc...Any tips?

    For my main food dish I use a combination of Hikari Bio Pure freeze-dried foods (brine shrimp, daphnia, tubifex worms, and plankton) mixed with spirulina powder and a calcium source (I rotate crushed oyster shell, crushed cuttlebone, and calcium powder) and occassionally give them Top Fin Large Freeze-Dried Medley with seaweed (soaked in dechlorinated salt water) and a calcium source. I also provide another food nightly...some kind of "treat" from the safe food list.

    I use a mix of eggs, egg shells, white oak bark, carrots, and bananas as the basic food and mix random other hermie-friendlie foods with it each day for variety and extra nutrients.
