Actually it was Scott, I do however maintain two natural ponds for
freshwater shrimps ect which are used by amphibians in the spring and
livebearers during the summer. All amphibians are protected species here in
the UK. Anyway with the abundance of other foods and the lack of amphibians
(compared to when I was a boy)I would not use them anyway.

Dont know about the USA but GRAM flour here in the UK is ground yellow
peas. WHole wheat flour is not suitable as it is a cereal as opposed to the
peas which are vegetable.
