Would these small mealworms work as a suppliment to a dart frog or mantellas diet, they are call Lesser Mealworms and only get to about 1/2" long, here's a link to a site where someone uses them as day gecko food http://www.xs4all.nl/~phelsuma/food.htm teir scientific name is Alphitobius diaperinus, and I have a lot of them. I don't currently own any dart frogs or mantellas at the moment but I have owned some golden mantellas that died from heat related muscled spasms when my air conditioner broke in the middle of last summer. Right now I'm working on a couple of vivariums, a 10 gallon that might now get used and a 30 gallon that probobly will. SO I'm just wondering if I should bother to cultivate these small mealworms or get rid of them.
And forgive me for my ignorance of the food section on this forum, I didn't see it before I posted, I just figured this would be a beginner question.
