Re: Live Foods Digest V2 #307pill bugs

Check out the Encyclopedia of Live Foods (C. O. Masters) pp.195-8. He tells
how to culture them and also how to collect them. Use an apple corer on a
potato. Plug one end of the hole with part of the potato plug. Put it in the
woods lightly covered with leaves. Empty your pill bug trap periodically.
I've never done it, but it sounds plausible. Sometimes I find them outside and
throw them in the pond, but never try to find quantities of them. My
experience inside is that few fish even cichlids eat them. Maybe they have to
be trained.
