Default Feeding an Orange Galac

Which species of fruit fly do you feed an adult orange galac? I've looked over the species information but can't find which one I will need to raise if I get this species.

Hydei which are larger.Mine also chow down on bean beetles which are easy to culture and would make a great backup or rotational food(which is what I do).

Lol, you don't know how happy I am to hear that even thought they are supposed to be slower culturing. I'm hoping for a few less fruit fly escapees though they might think the frog is a better ending than the cats playing with them.

A local reptile focused pet store, Pet Paradise, has both bean and wheat beetles so I will probably be doing just that to both give me a backup and give them variety.

I'm assuming that you dust the beetles before feeding them. Also after reading I'm to understand that the adult bean beetle doesn't eat anything?

Yes you dust bean beetles like you would ffs.BBs do not eat anything.They lay their eggs on the Black eyed peas.The larvae hatch and eat the beans from the inside.Approx.4 weeks later(depending on temps)they emerge as adult beetles,breed for the rest of their life which is about 10-14~ days,then die,and the whole process starts over again.If you stagger your cultures about a week apart or so,you can have a steady supply.If you don't need a lot do them every 2-3 weeks.I have flour beetles,but they are a pain in the butt because most frogs only eat the larvae.They have been basically a long term pet .
