Hi Richard,

  You'd be better off asking what won't they eat <g>  I give my extras
to a friend with turtles (when there isn't a fish club meeting).  He
say's they will tear through a 5 gal bucket of plants in a day and a
half (he has a 375gal turtle basin full o' turtles).  Haven't found
anything they don't like.
