:lol: I just got 2 tincs last weekend and I started 2 cultures on Sun last week. I used the mashed pototoes, dry milk, sugar, and yeast method, it worked great. Now both of the cultures have larvae all over the bottom of them and some on the sides. I cant believe I got it right the first time. I was told it just doesnt work sometimes and I was prepared for it not working. Now I will have many flies. Hurrah. I even had some flies mate in my tincs tank and I saw a larvae crawling up the side of the glass and my tinc Keller ate him right up of the glass.
