    For those of you who have or are currently culturing buzzati ff's I have some questions... I've read that buzzati cultures last longer than hydei and they also produce more. Do you find this to be true? I'm sick of hydei's BOOM and BUST cycle and want steadier longer lasting production. And no...

    Hello, I'm a beginner at keeping a fruit fly culture and I think my fruit flies might have overpopulated. First I noticed a smell coming from the cup and when I looked closer the bottom was full of larvae. Is it normal or should I set up a new colony? Also is there anything I can do about the...

    Idk if this is old news but it may be worth posting for those who have not yet read this. https://www.conservationevidence.com/individual-study/6787 I've also read that fruit flies are capable of taking up carotenoids in their diet. I've always added paprika, spirulina and Haematococcus algae...

    I've gotten fruit flies from 3 different vendors but nothing seems to help. My fruit flies keep becoming capable of flying again within a few weeks. Is there any way to prevent this?

    Hi!! So I’m working on building my tank still but it was recommended I get the hang of my fruit fly cultures before l get the frogs because it seems it can maybe be tricky. I will have isopods and springtails in my rank too. When should I get those? I assumed to order/buy those once I have the...

    Can fruit flies successfully reproduce in a viv? Long stupid scenario but: I first noticed my sips getting less excited at feeding time. First I was worried about decreased appetite and thriving but then I realized there was still a ton of undusted FF by my banana slice. Watching more carefully...

    I have an issue. I heavily dust my FFs with Repashy Calcium Plus. Add multiple “feeding stations” (I’ve found orange slices decompose at a slower rate) in the tank since FFs have a tendency to scatter and be in multiple areas. However can within 10 minutes, my FFs are no longer dusted. The...

    Anyone ever thought of cutting a hole in the lid of a fruit fly jar and then covering it with a piece of duct tape that only has part of its sticky part exposed on either end- and the area that would be above the hole itself would be taped over so that no sticky-ness would be exposed? Does that...
