so yesterday i was sitting around doing nothing and came up with an insane idea, YOu guys probably know that celery stalks are full of water right, and you know that ckrickets need food and water to survive, so what if you fed a crivket a piece of celery that has been soaked in water mixed with calci powder,(tell me if celery isn't a good food for crickets),Would the cricket then have calcium in his body and pass the calci onto frog or not???

i thought that celery was mostly just water. and there is relatively no nutrition value at all?
sooo.. you're basically just loading them up on water?? idk.

I think he is saying that it would be a good way for the crickets to get water from the celery.
And if you soaked the celery with calcuim powder, the crickets would then get water and calcium at the same time.
Am I right?

Celery has no nutritional value. They wouldn't get enough nutrition to survive. It takes more calories to digest celery than you get from the food.
Potatoes, carrots, apples and pears make a good diet.
Also you don't want to feed crickets a diet high in calcium because they easily overdose and die.
if you want to gutload crickets do it only 24 hours or less before feeding. I suggest using a flukers gutload product.

I give my crickets the leafy part of the celery stalk. Well, actually, i give them any bit of veggie leftovers from dinner that night. They seem to really like broccoli too.
