Default Pseudobranchus axanathus feeding

Here is a video of a couple Pseudobranchus axanathus axanathus during feeding time. The beginning of the video shows one almost in the center of the screen, somewhat hidden in the shadows, getting ready to feed on the mass of blackworms in front of it. This group seems very shy while I'm near the tank (unlike my newts). You have to look closely to see them for the first half, but after that they become more active. The substrate in the tank is not pea gravel, it's play sand, the sirens are just so small it looks like gravel.

You must go through a lot of blackworms! Do you raise them or buy them in bulk?
Cool video, Jake!

Thanks guys.

Dawn-I go through about 1 pound every week to two weeks depending on if I have a lot of larvae at the time. Raising them for all my animals would take way too much room.

Thanks Tom.

I've made a couple others, nothing really special, this one is kind of lame considering they don't move much, but I like the subjects.

Good Job, Jacob! Very well done and interesting to see.

I like the setup - what is the size of the tank and what size are the sirens?

Echo that superb. There's something almost Chinese dragon like about them. I wonder if they are available in the UK

The tank is 45 gallons, the sirens are all around 6-6.5 inches.

If they are available in the UK they probably cost a LOT of money! I know there are a couple people keeping them over there though.
