i just read the description for these fellas in my axelrod bible.It states that they need tubiflex worms,or they are likely to starve.Does anyone have any experiance with this?
Please ignore this same question in my other post.

I don't have experience with it but I've never heard of them starving without Tubifex in their diet.

I used to have them years ago and never fed them tubiflex worms. They ate any left over regular food and algea wafers when I through them in. I had them for at least 3 years with no problems. At work we don't feed them tubiflex worms either.
