  5. Hi i just loved the bit about when you knocked your temporary holding tub over I did laugh 😆 you made my day especially when your wife wasn’t very impressed I could just imagine what she was like I think you’re a star ⭐️ and I bet you did learn your lesson 100% I’m just really after some info on the baby Madagascar hissers I mean what colour are they so that I can keep a look out for them cuz I definitely know I’ve got mature males and females and do you have to provide calcium like cuttlefish for their exoskeleton I could really do with some info thank you from Karen
  6. Hi My Madagascar hissers love fruity roach chow from a company called bugznbits and there website is bugznbits.co.uk or you can buy from eBay it’s quite cheap aswell mine love dandelion leaves when I put these in they’ve gone in seconds also coriander leaves and stem fruit wise they seem to love apple best of all but what I was thinking of doing is a fruit cocktail you know grate some sweet potato, apple, coriander leaves chopped, grated carrot and just see what’s left if anything at least then by giving them a mixture they can pick for themselves what they like and then you’ll know I haven’t fed any kind of fish food to mine but I’m thinking of trying it or pond sticks I’ve heard of for protein I’ve tried mine with ground dry dog food and they positively won’t touch it perhaps it’s the brand (lol)😊 from Karen
