Default Hi to Everybody

Hi, I'm new of this board.
I'm a 24 years old and I'm from Italy.
I keep dendrobates from almost 1 year
I got a climatized room where I keep dendrobates tinctorius, auratus and leucomelas.

I would like to know some tips and other opinions about the breeding and the reproduction.

I've seen that in the states you use media for fruit flies that you buy already done.
Here there's no shop that sell it and I got to make it by myself.
Have you got any recipe to suggest to me?

Thak you all

Here is the thread where I got my information on culturing:

8c potato flakes
1c powdered sugar
1c brewers yeast
1tsp paprika
1 crushed prenatal vitamin

I just store this in gallon size baggies and use it as I need it. After I sterilize my cups I put 1/3c of this media into each cup. Then add 1/2c of liquid. For melanogaster I do half and half (1/4c & 1/4c) water and vinegar. I am now trying less vinegar for my hydei since some people are saying that they don't do good with vinegar. Just in case anyone wanted an actual recipe. I am also now trying the activating the bakers yeast part, but it didn't work so hot for me. I don't think that I used enough of it on each culture. I also may not have let it sit long enough to activate it. wcumagic, how much did you put on top of each culture?

Welcome to DB, by the way.
