so i'm the guy with spyro, the AWD in the posts called AWD Mouth infection?

i've been trying to move away from his diet of primarily fish as this is unhealthy.

i have had no luck finding a bug that won't escape his tank and promotes a feeding response.

i have found it in nightcrawler earthworms.

my dragon stuffs these worms into his mouth 3 at a time, i've been providing them for the last week.

the results are nonetheless amazing! for one, he hasen't eaten this much in months! for two he's had his first full body shedding in months! he looks like a new lizard!

what i want to know is if nightcrawler earthworms are a good staple food that i can feed everyday untill i can find more bugs he'll eat. he doesn't like kingworms and crickets escape his cage.

the worms have dirt in them, is there a substrate i can keep the worms in that will gutload them with something nutritious?

do worms have any preformed vitamin A?

lol, is there a better place for me to ask these questions as this board is as dead as my grandpa?

here's a pic of his shiny new skin. notice the shed line on his tail, that was his old colors.
