We've 8 eels ranging in size from 5" to 10". Previously, we tried blackworms, earthworms, and Repto-Min sticks. They really grew fast under the Repto-Min regimen, however some died after 3 years and after looking at a number of reasons ie, water quality, amphibian diseases, etc, we figured that we possibly fed them to much of the Repto-min sticks. Eels that I thought were gravid, under necropsy, showed them to be just fat. We possibly fed them to death. Anyway, the reason for my query is to find out what others are feeding with or without artificially made products and how often during a weeks time you feed them. Right now we feed our 8, 2 times a week on the blackworms and earthworms.
Best...
Jim
