    Brown bread ( fred feeds white, that's coz he likes to be different ) Shrimps, Mealworms, to be honest
    the list goes on, including Breakfast cereal But others will give you ideas for a varied diet / treats etc.

    Mussels, shrimps, prawns, oranges, brown bread, mealworms, cheerios, earthworms, lettuce, shelled peas etc.

    Mine go mad for mussels, mealworms and earthworms.

    Earthworms are great in the winter when your not feeding, chopped mussels ok at lowish temps too (say 7 or 8C).

    They love the mussels

    Earthworms are supposed to be very good for them,full of protein.
    Often thought of doing a wormery for them but never got round to it.

    I left a couple off, you know, to give others a chance to show off.... Like Silkworm Pupae, except you pay Koi tax on them plus not all Koi like them.
