Default Re: Black Moss

It turns out it was the vitamin powder when I dumped in the flies. I replaced the moss with riccia and it also turned black right after I fed the frogs and accidently dumped some of the powder out. I replaced the riccia and came up with a solution that might be helpful to others...

I put the vitamin powders and Super Pig in a fly breeding cup and dump in some flies and shake to coat them. Then I pour the flies and the powder through a strainer over another cup. I use a strainer that I bought from Josh's Frogs that they use to sift Rice Beetle Larvae. Works like a charm...The excess powder goes through the strainer into the cup and the flies can be dumped from the strainer into the enclosure.
