Thank you all. You couldn't have said it any more clearly, and you are unanimous. I'm embarrassed to think what I've done for her so far is barely a step up from that crappy cup in Petco – I’ll get a heater and a bigger bowl or small tank ASAP!
About giving her absolutely plain, cooked foods; my reasoning was, I knew where the meat bits came from and what was (and wasn't) in them. I'm afraid worms, etc, are subject to quality and freshness issues, that they could cause bacterial or fungal contamination in her only habit. But, okay...no more 'people food', I promise! I'm grateful that she's active and seems healthy in spite of my ignorance. I'll keep reading here, and learning. I want what's best for my fish -- I hope I’ll be posting about her for a long time : )
