There's nothing personal, just being my usual irascible self
Yes, niles. I know, I shared my experience with dums and shellfish as an example of a species that shellfish has worked well with.
You stated that my opinion was wrong and that rodents were a superior food source and implied that shellfish are less than adequate and unproven, I called you on that B.S.
I actually have done the research Fr, years of it, back and forth with rodents and shellfish over generations, that's how I came to my conclusions, you know actual hands on experience. You want to tell me that your theory trumps my experience, again I call B.S
I don't need to test it anymore, I have the results.
My thoughts are that a shellfish staple would work great for Niles, waters and several other medium to large species and would like to see others results. We have the results of niles and waters kept on a rodent diet, both with adequate and inadequate husbandry, lets see what the results are for shellfish.My guess is that shellfish could be proven out to be a far better choice.
Your comment on dums, crawfish and prey item value shows you have no ability to absorb or comprehend information Frank.
Local crawfish have nothing to do with this conversation, the value of the prey does, again you are unable to grasp this concept or answer a question. Do you have any evidence of anyone anywhere breeding this species (or niles) to generations on rodents? What do you think shellfish lack as a staple? What evidence do you have that rodents are superior to shellfish for these species?
You want some dums, fine, come over and get them, I've thrown hundreds of eggs in the trash for the last few years and will never again sell monitors to the public, but I have a gravid female now, I'll incubate the clutch and you can have as many as you'd like. I have no problem putting my money where my mouth is do you?
Ben
