We keep a pair of B. vittatus, and they seem to do well on around 2 dozen crickets every 4-5 days or so. Note, though, that B. vittatus are significantly smaller than B. plumifrons, so take that into account. We also keep a mixed fruit-and-vegetable salad in their enclosure, which we generally replace daily. They seem to graze on the salad about as much as they eat those crickets. The salad be use if a home mix of mustard greens, squash, berries, and snow peas. Basilisks generally need at least some plant material in their diet, so I'd suggest offering some sort of mixed salad. Make sure you don't offer lettuce, spinach, or cabbage, though, as these are generally bad for lizards.
