I was thinking of adding something more to my RES (Gary) than the Nutramin gammarus and occasional guppies. Specifically I was thinking salmon (cheap, and abundant). Is it ideal to use raw sushi-quality salmon or should I cook it bare (steam, boil). And after that should I leave the food bits floating with the rest of it or should i lay the bits of salmon on the basking area? Also, I was thinking of adding insects. What kind should I use and again would I want to float them in the water or lay them on the basking area? Any help would be appreciated.

My turtle loves crickets. I buy the freeze-dried ones that they sell at drsfostersmith.com. I float one in the water every other day.
