terrestrial or aquatic caecilians?

for the terrestrial i just would put a bunch of euro night crawlers directly into their terrarium.

for the aquatic i used to drop in european night crawlers cut into 4ths (these are the 'panfish bait worms' sold at walmart), problem was that they got too eager to eat them and would over eat then barf them back up a while later and fouling the water. i used to also offer frozen blood worms but they didnt eat them all-so it left a mess in the tank. i now have switched to reptomin floating food sticks. these are made for turtles and newts-so are a good protein balance. they are sold as a dry pellet -which has the added benefit of long shelf life and low cost. since these float the caecilians will root around at the surface of the water to find them all-and they do! not only do they eat them eagerly but they also are able to find them all since they all float. i recommend it.
