Will C. orientalis eat freeze dried tubifex worms or bloodworms? I'm having difficulty finding someone to supply live food. Should I get frozen or keep the freeze dried till I find live?

I feed mine tubifex worms but most of the time I put a bundle of them up to its snout so it can smell it and then it strikes. I think that as long as it smells the food it will eat it.

I think frozen bloodworms are better than dried food (both in acceptance by the animals and in nutrition).

You DO have live bait shops in Summerville, SC. I just checked on google. They should be able to sell you earthworms, or you can find them outdoors.

Yes, but sometimes I hand feed them.
