I picked up a pair of rather small, but outstanding Algama's this summer. They fed on a couple of baby fence lizards at first, but are rejecting every thing else I've tried.

I have started tube feeding them with a mixture of egg yolk and vitamine supplements. It appears to be going well, but before I go too far with the technique I would like to know if anyone else has gone this route and what kind of success they had, any recommendations they might have and what would be the optimum formula for this approach.

Thanks,
Roger
