Hello I recently purchased my first gator. I did all of my research, and I still find myself stuck with a few questions. I was planning on feeding her crayfish, superworms, pinky mice, crickets, and the occasional goldfish. I am wondering if there is any other kind of fish which you can buy at your local petstore which are alittle bit healthier than goldfish? Also I am curious in why crickets can kill your caiman/alligator? I have read many things about keeping gators smaller by not feeding so much, I am curious in how much to feed her? so that she will not grow to be a giant in the first 2 years. thanks please share any info you have on this subject.

Ryan
