Oh, cool!!! We've got a rat (Peanut) that would love this, I bet. Plus my boys will think it fun. Tell me more, please. Do they continue to breed within the bucket or do you have to replace them so often? Can I still compost the rat poop in my compost bin? Where do you get them? What kind of fish did you feed them to? We have a goldfish. I will definitely *not* tell friends and neighbors if we do this. They already think me nuts for letting my boys get the rat. The cat and the goldfish pass muster as "normal" pets. ;-) TIA, Lisa Tualatin, OR Helen wrote: >Daughter Melanie raised mealwoms in a bucket or bran flakes (with a >tight-fitting lid).
