The Pisces Cricket Keeper Kit has been designed by Pisces Enterprises, who pioneered Live Food Insect production in Australia. It includes a strong plastic box & lid, two feeder tubes, two bowls, samples of Gutload and Aquaload and a pack of Cricket Keeper Absorbant Floor Pads.
Pisces Cricket Keeper has numerous vents to keep the air flowing, giving your crickets a healthy well-aired environment in which to thrive.
The entire lid is removable for cleaning and there is a clear top door which flips open to allow for crickets to be added to your keeper.
When the dispensing tubes are removed, flaps cover the hole to ensure there are no escapees!
When housing Woodies, paint a strip of Fluon around the top wall of the cricket keeper or place a piece of flyscreen under the lid. Woodies are quite tricky & babies escape from the tiniest holes.
The Dispensing Tubes are designed for the crickets to find refuge inside as they love dark places. This makes catching the crickets for feeding easy and clean, no need to touch the live food. The special transparent cap ends allow you to see when the tubes have insects in them.
Live Food Insects are vital to the successful keeping of many animals. Well cared for insects have a longer shelf life and provide better nutrition for your valuable pets.
The Cricket Keeper Kit contains two bowls to place Aquaload and Gutload in to provide hydration and nutrition to the crickets or woodies. To ensure optimal "gutloading" for your animals ensure that fresh gutload and aquaload are availabe constantly for the crickets or woodies.
Samples of Aquaload & Gutload are included in the Kit.
How to Use
Every 2-3 days remove the old Aquaload cubes from the Cricket Keeper and replace with new fresh cubes.
Also add teaspoon of Gutload.

Pisces Aquaload has been specially formulated to provide a safe clean water source for insects during storage.
