Re: Live Foods Digest V3 #69

Hello Jeremy,

Carolina Biological http://www.carosci.com/worm.htm offers an instant
fruit fly medium -- just add water, no need to boil. 

They offer colorless and blue media. The blue variety is good if you
want to collect maggots -- they stand out in the blue medium.
