drosophila culture

Just received a drosophila culture from a member of another forum. After my complete failure at getting mosquito larvas to grow (in Florida... considering I live not too far from the everglades... ). I've read that they are very nutritious (though I guess that partly depends on what I feed them) and that bettas love them. I guess it's not common practice to feed these to bettas since I haven't seen a lot of people here talking about it but I figured I'd give it a shot and get the experience of culturing them along the way. I opened the package and peeked in looking like ... but so far it's not quite as gross as I thought! We'll see how it goes when it's time to get them out or split the culture.

Good luck with your drosophilia culture! I think live food would be a wonderful addition to any healthy betta's diet!
