I am feeding with homemade pellets - I make them from organic oil  
press cake (hemp, almond, sesame and linseed), whole meal spelt flour,  
and a little rockdust. All of it purchased, I admit. I grow my own  
duckweed to supplement. For next season I plan to set up my BSF larvae  
production (with setting up the main system I could not focus on that,  
and it failed), and a tank growing a small native crawfish on tree  
leaves and veggy scraps for fich food .
