Live food Wingless Fruit flies anybody try them?
I was wondering if anybody uses them, I have found a place that sells Black worms from Florida, wife a little on pissed side with worms in the fridge, so maybe a culture of flies kept by the window.
So let's hear it.

I have never used them but our respected member Dave66 does, and he wrote this primer. http://www.aquaticcommunity.com/aqua...ad.php?t=63410When I go fishing I just throw sharp rocks in the water and wait for the dead fish to float to the top... Kingfisher
Everything happens for a reason. Sometimes that reason is you are stupid and make bad decisions.
I think my fish is adjusting well to the four gallon, He's laying on his side attempting to go to sleep on the bottom of the gravel.
Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery.
Dear naps, sorry I hated you so much when I was a child... Love me

I use them as treats now and then. The fish seem to enjoy them, although mine are all used to sinking frozen food now. I will note that my gold gourami has no clue what to do with them. He bites at them, but they sort of slid away on the surface tension.I hate hearing people say "it's only a $3/$5/$1 fish/shrimp, so it's ok if it dies, I can just get another." It's still an animal! All animals should be treated like they're worth $10,000.

I get the flightless fruit fly tubes from petsmart and my hatchet fish go CRAZY over them. They normally clear them all out edits my other fish can get to them. They're wonderful for top feeders, but fish that don't go up to the top may not see them.

I have kept them, easy to keep and breed. Just don't let them escape into the rest of your home. Dave's post on fruit flies is worth a read.
