Re: Charcoal (was Get back on track
As a matter of fact, I left your letter in my "IN" box, to get back to
it later, after the holidays -- sorry old chap, but you can not really
appreciate *this* holiday! :-))
But here goes:
What is a "black (charcoal) dog biscuit"? (I trust that I don't show too
fundamental an ignorance of dog gourmet fare.)
The idea of black microworms is attractive. I wonder whether vitamins
could be adsorbed on the charcoal prior to feeding it to the microworms?
If the microworms ingest enough charcoal to show, vitamin-doped charcoal
would then benefit the fry! Or would it?
I don't know much about microworm nutrition, but I was under the
impression that they eat yeast cells. If that charcoal is about the same
size as a yeast cell, then they probably ingest it "instead" of yeast.
Wouldn't non-nutrient charcoal lower the microworm's food value? Or has
the charcoal adsorbed all the good stuff from the dogfood and is now
If charcoal from a dog biscuit gets ingested by microworms, why not just
add some powdered charcoal (sold in pharmacies for alimentary gas
problems) and add *that* to the traditional unbleached cornmeal? Will
have to try that -- it should work, if the grain size is right!
