Did you feed it raw or blanch it first Question

I use it raw and have no problems leaving it for 24 hours before changing. It could well break up quicker after blanching, depending on the length of time it's blanched for.

I fed it a few times raw and left it for about 24 hours and then removed it. I found that the female loved it and gave it to them and both times they spawned about a week later- just my experience. Hope it helps!
