Good Pre-Made Media?

1083 Views 9 Replies 8 Participants Last post by  heatfreakk3
I've been using a pre-made media from one of the sponsors here (not going to give the name so I don't hurt their rep) and I've had horrible luck with it. I tested it side by side with another sponsor's media and the latter out-produced the other culture (with the crappy media) basically by 100%. I'm looking for another media to purchase, and I was wondering what you guys are using. I'd like a just-add-water media. Please tell me the sponsor who sells it. Thanks!

I use Joshs... all I do is add 1/2 cup of media, 2/3 cup of hot tap water, let it sit for a minute, put three coffee filters in and in 12-14 days I have more flies... I dont mix it, I dont do anything. Oh, and I always stack them in a pyramid, I dont think this matters, but it looks cool :)

Thanks for the suggestions guys. Let's just say I didn't have the same experience as you guys with the stuff.
Same here use josh's frogs and works like a CHAMP!
I make my own now, but my first 6 months into the hobby I used the media from Alpha great & smells good!

I haven't tried it yet (plan to), but Allen Repashy is releasing a media called SuperFly. You can read about it here. New Product Press Release. Repashy: SuperFly - Gecko Resource Forums
I mostly make my own, but occasionally add some pre-made.

Joshes!!! It works amazing, and you don't have make anything. I've tried a few others with not even close as good affect as joshes.
