Help please
Posted: 27/08/2009 by titania

Have just been given a two and a half year old horsfield and am totally confused at what to feed him as i had given him a small piece of apple which he loved and a small piece of tomato now have read on the care sheet not to feed him apple or any fruit nothing mentioned about the tomato though but what do you feed him on once the flowers, weeds etc have died off?  He has got cuttlefish and we are in the process of sorting out his box ie substrate, rocks water etc.  Do they eat meal / wax worms at all?  How often should he be fed ? Please help as i want him to thrive and don't want to starve the poor little thing
