Hey so what all plants are safe ... like can I go out in my back yard and get some bark ? Do they eat and like bark ? .. and any tree branch ... and any plant leaf can I take a leaf from a tree and put it in the tank ?

Check the safe food list. Make sure no pesticides or inorganic fertilizers are used in your yard. If you live within city limits or in a suburb, call the municipal offices and ask if they spray for mosquitos in your area. Many places do.

Raw chicken, bits of beef, bits of fish or shrimp.
