I've heard some references in posts on this board about adding paprika to FF culture media. I googled up some guy's experiment where he got better longevity in his cultures (if I interpret his experiment right) by supplementing with paprika http://www.cryonet.org/cgi-bin/dsp.cgi?msg=8980.

Has anyone had any experience with this? Also, is the paprika just for the flies, or is it for the frogs?

Don't mean to hijack, but I already put spirulina in my cultures for the green in my auratus. Would it hurt to add paprika ALSO for my tincs and vents....in the same cultures?

Thanks,

I don't think it would hurt the cultures, but to be safe just test it with a couple cultures and keep some as you normaly do them. This way, if they do crash you will still have food.

Whenever I have added spirulina to my cultures is has shortened their lifespan. The ones with Parika seem to do a little better then the normal ones (plain ff medium)... but I am not 100% sure of this. I would like to test this one day, but who has the time :D .
