First, a warning...
Always vent your isopods!!!
My isos were doing great unventilated with simply opening them once in a while. They had reproduced enough that I needed to split them, so I did into unventilated containers again and added more media. However, I must have added too much media with not enough air space at the top because I checked them one day to find an entire culture of white isos completely dead at the surface.
So...I took some out of each of my remaining cultures and made new cultures with more airspace at the top and
drilled a hole in two sides of each culture.
Now...fruitflies are finding their way in!!! UGH!!!
I plan on covering the holes with something that will let air through, but my question is...
Will they breed in there?
If so, once the holes are covered so that no more can get in...
After they hatch and are removed, the cultures should be fine, right? I don't have to start over??? Please say I don't! I've got several largish cultures going right now with lots of babies!
