They will eat and eat. Feed but dont go overboard. Live food have risks but

Crickets
Blood worms
Red wigglers
Guppies
Ghosts
Feeder gold fish

Any frozen tubiflex blood worms ect.

Absolutely. Some live foods are lower on protien than one might think. Its been awhile and cant remember all the protein values. Do a little research to ensure he/she gets balanced diet.
