But would it be worth upgrading, like, would it be a waste of money? My current diet is:

Green Grass Heads
Dry Seed (finch mix)
Blended Kale with Egg 'n' Biscuit
Lebanese Cucumber
Grated Carrot
Mealworms
Cuttlebone
Baked Egg Shells

Also, I found some Red Panicum for sale from Australian Wildlife Supplies, and I heard it was very nutritional for gouldians, so I might add some of that in too.

Your current diet sounds very good. But definately add the red panicum. I always find my finches love it. Just make sure it is red panicum not some other small red seed. As there has been a bit of this "substituting" going on. My supplier sent several bags back when this happened.

Well, I now have Gouldians, Stars and Orange Breasts on the nest, so I guess I'm doing something right
