I'm skeptical of the 'vacation feeder' idea. First, a person can dump a lot
of springs into a viv without stress to the frogs -- like the population of a few 8 oz cultures. Two, I don't see the value in any sort of vacation feeder; healthy frogs can go a week -- easily -- without any bugs added to a properly running viv, and for more than a week a qualified frogsitter should check in anyway. Perhaps there are some very limited cases where the spring feeder would be useful (growouts where there isn't a naturally large spring population established, maybe), but for general practice vacation feeders aren't valuable.
Some pics of your cultures would be interesting, if you could post some. Thanks for sharing!
