Fruit fly culture

Hello All 

Has anyone ever tried co-culturing micro worms and fruit flies together?  

Any thoughts on instant potato media?  I use it occasionally (when I 
have a large population of flies going) but have inconsistent results 
with it.  I use one part potatos one part water a teaspoon of sugar and 
a pinch of yeast but the cultures mold or get covered with bacteria 
rather quickly and only produce a few flies.  When I use Carolina's 
media I get hundreds of flies and several generations.  I would like to 
get the instant media down before I run out of commercial media, help!
