I would like to know what everyone that keeps Defensors are feed them.

I'm feeding my defensors. baby mixed organic greens: (baby lettuces: red, green, romaine, red & green oak leaf, lollo rosa, tango, mizuna, red & green chard, spinach, arugula, frisee, radicchio), mixed vegetables, crickets, strawberries, raspberries, What do they love and can't turn down? I'm looking to put weight on them?

I have 1.2 adults and 1. yearling. The yearling eats everything. 1.1 eat ok and one female is very thin. I would like to put weight on all the adults.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hello Garrett,
do you keep the adults together? Maybe the thin females is dominated by the other female!
Do you feed only vegetables and fruits, no herbs and weeds?
You should try some other insects, like Superworms and waxworms to the thin female.

Hello Juergen,

Yes, I do keep the adults together. I will try to separate her and see what happens. I put my go pro camera on them and watched them for a day. Very interesting….. I didn't see any fighting. I did see the male bob his head a lot. I have tried the super worms and wax worms. I think they ate them. I don't know.
