    Thank you for this. Up until recently I've always been very afraid of culturing fruit flies, but after reading this, and working with the culture that I got from silkwormshop I think this can easily be done.

    Should I start fruit fly culturing for a red eyed tree frog?

    It depends upon the size of the frog you are getting.

    Just to let everyone know, we worked on Paul's original article (attached to this thread) and we have made a much more detailed and informative Care Article out of it, which can be viewed here: http://www.frogforum.net/care-articl...rosophila.html

    Thanks it did work. As the post stated, there are many ways to make a culture. Fruit flies are
    easy to raise. I don't use excelsior as it brings in mites. As long as I use something else
    (corr. cardboard) I don't have a mite problem, I also set all cultures on mite paper just in case.
