Hi I am feeding Anzac 6 weeks the little crickets but where he has paper in the viv the crickets keep going under that so he can't get to them.
No wonder he loves it when you feed him with the tweezers, he only has to see you pick them up and he charges up to the glass, I was trying to pick up a cricket for him and he just kept grabbing at the tweezers before I could catch the cricket. It makes it look like he has never been fed.

No easy solution to the paper problem unless you remove it completely I'm afraid. It's good to know that he is active when feeding even if he can't wait 'til the food's on the tweezers!

Got the vinyl flooring, done the job nicely and didn't have to pay anything for it.
He look very smart now with his dark wood effect, and the cricket stand out really well and can't hide underneath.
