Default Re: What do you feed your alpines?

Worms or nightcrawlers are the best staple food for pretty much all newts. I dig mine out of my garden beds and yard (I do not use herbicides or pesticides). Alpines are not generally fussy eaters, frozen bloodworms, black worms, earthworms, live brine shrimp, daphnia will probably all be accepted without any issue. I have been able to get adults to eat pellets too which makes things even easier. Red wigglers/Eisenia sp. (often sold as "trout worms") may be the only worm you may run into trouble with as they have a foul odor but even these can be accepted with time.
