I feed hydei to my veileds. They love them.... I just put the fruitflies on the plants and let the chams find them like how it would be out in nature. Did you dust the fruitflies? Its harder for fruitflies to climb with calcium on them. What kind of fruitflies are you feeding them hydei or melanogaster?

I think fruit flies are a lot of trouble for a 5 month old who should be eating bigger food anyway. My 5 month old veiled wouldn't even bother if I offered them, which I don't. Fruitflies are good food for babies and pygmies.

I agree, Fruitflies are too small for a 5 month old veiled. If your looking to switch his diet up a little try phoenix worms or mealworms.
