Whats that saying great minds think alike, some weeks ago when mixing up a batch of instant potato for the fruit fly cultures I had some left and thought I would try it on the white worm. I also thought as they eat Readybrek dry perhaps they will eat instant potato powder so I tried three cultures each. The dry powder is a disaster and had to be mixed into the medium after three days as it was not being eaten and after one day resembled a film of fungal growth over the culture (it only resembles a growth there was in fact no such problem) the reconstituted potato was also not a success with the worms eating it very slowly under protest. So it was back to the real thing and readybrek.

Thought for live food fanatics

Time flys like an arrow, fruit flys like a banana.
