they like flake food or anything that floats on top. in nature they sit and watch the top of the water for food. so anything that falls and floats they will eat.

ya near it so it can spot it,make sure its a small/medium size cricket not the monsters they sell for lizards,it wont be able to swallow it.oh a make sure you watch it get eaten, more then once i was in a hurry and just dropped it in only to have it crawl out of the tank and hear my wife scream at the top of her lungs
