I've been culturing melo FF's for many years, pretty much all types, with total ease and success. I recently got a hydei culture and when I got home started a couple of others. I've read the threads and added a few things to the mix I use to accomodate the hydei but I've still not seen any activity. I started 3 or for melo cultures the very same day and they are already busting with maggots and pupae and I'm wondering does it just take longer for hydei to reproduce or to see maggot activity etc... Sorry if this is in another thread but I did a search and TONS of threads about hydei came up. Thanks in advance!!
