Very well put I couldn't have said it better myself . Some "very few " do help the newbs on here. My experience came at a hard price
, aggravation , a few deaths . My beaded's were regurgitating like crazy . I would feed them & 2 days later...out it came . I have changed the bedding, lowered temps , checked for parasites , & Finally changed their food . My beaded's & gila's cannot eat mice/rats "hairy food" . They will throw it up every time & I have done test after test . This is what I have came up with . They will eat chicken , fish "not often" , shrimp "not often" , rat pups , & pinkies "when they are babies" . I had another beaded on it's death bed " from regurgitating . I started feeding it straight shrimp & added vitamin d3 to it's water & to this day he is doing awesome . He does get different foods now days but nothing "hairy" . I have now changed his name to Goliath . Hope this will help some regurgitating probs that some of you have . I know that this will somehow turn into a feeding debate over the shrimp but it saved my beaded's life .
