tricolor's stripes and color
Well, I am struggling getting my McCormick paprika to stick to fruit flies. I tried a mortar and pestal, but to no avail. I just feed out Sandfire Dragon Ranch tree frog dust as my main supplement and has really shown good results in my tincs colors.
However, I'm looking into other potential solutions to color up my tricolor.
This paprika thing isn't working for me, as I just can't get it to stick. Unless there is another brand you recommend that is finer.
I do add this to my fly cultures, however, I have heard it is only effective if you feed the frogs the maggots, something that I cannot do unless I plan on having a bunch of fllies getting loose.
Anybody try beta carotene tablets, and grind them up? I'd just be a little nervous because of all the filler ingredients added.
BTW, what causes a tricolor's stripes to become narrower? Has anybody figured that out with F1s?
