    Hey guys!

    I was just wondering how everyone looked after their live yabbies before feeding them to your turtles? I've simply kept all mine in a bucket, however, I feel as if I could improve this.

    Put them in a 2ft tank with a sponge filter and heaps of pieces of pvc pipe. Feed them every 2-3 days on frozen peas.

    I keep mine in a pond, with the turtles. They breed successfully in there but occasionally I need to boost the population.
