    Yeah, I got this idea from the "other" forum, but I thought it was a cool thread ;)

    Mine are having a slice of banana, a hibiscus flower (I froze them as they wilted all Summer...lol) and some silversides, all sprinkled with Kerie's food.

    Ewww, you chop the silversides...lol. I don't even want to touch the stinky things, I kind of use the bag to move them into the food bowl and let them that in there till I put it in the 'tat.

    lol. i'm with you Amie. i finally found some last night and gagged when steph opened the bag and the stink hit me. i was GOING to chop them up and then just decided to throw a whole one in each tank. Vicki wasn't kidding when she said they stink. funny thing is they are dragging the carcass all over the place in there. i'll be lucky to find it tomorrow...
     
  20. you think silver sides are bad...? Tonight my crabs got chopped carp (I know it's not the best fish, but I got it before I knew!) squished up mussles topped with chipped spinach. I like eating fish, the smell doesn't bother me, but I was almost ready to :icon_puke_r: when I was preparing it! Let me tell you...they better enjoy it! :icon_tongue:
