Try to maintain MP as the main staple food. If they are choosing something over it(e.g. superworms, frogs) then reduce feeding on those till they eat your MP again. Stagger out the intervals and play with the timings to know how you can incorporate a mixed diet.

One of the method I use is to feed MP first followed by small amounts of superworms. If the aro refuses the MP then the SW will not be fed

how many pcs comm?
all of them refuse mp after bf?
starve them if they refuse mp.. it won't take very long for them to accept other food or any food especially when its a comm.

Normally i starving for 1-2 days they will accept mp back.
Just checking wether can feed 2gether like bf in morning n nite mp.
Cos try b4 when i give sw they only eat sw until no more n starve awhile then they take mp again.
How to train them to eat everything,so i can feed them the food alternately.
I have 5 pcs of red commas.
