 I keep two differnt jars of wingless fruitflies on the desk in my office.
They are normal 1 pint widemouth canning jars. I semi rotate the jars so I
always have a culture going in both jars, there just at differnt stages of
development.I feed them to my desk top tank with White Cloud's in it. If it
wasn't for the snaiil eating all the eggs, I would have a milion little
fishies swimming around in there. Let me know if you need a start.
