Hi All,
I found a lot of pale green maggots in a old box of Quaker Grits(corn).
They are about 1/2 in long and somewhat slender. My Tesselated Darters
'em and its great fun to watch them tear the larvae to pieces. Sometimes
two of them will grab one maggot at the same time and spin aroud to rip
them apart. They are a bit chewy and my dwarf Cichlids will not eat
them.They mature to small moths with brown and tan mottled wings. Does
anybody know what these are and how to culture them? Any info on
small maggots appreciated.
Thanx, Ken
