flightless fruit flies, Drosophilla melanogaster. I bought a culture and some fly food and make up a few new cultures every couple weeks, seeding the new culture with flies from the old on right after it blooms (bloom = the larvae pupate and turn into flies). I dust them with vitamin powder and drop them into the tank and the frogs nom them up. I also have the substrate seeded with springtails, which keep it clean and the frogs eat the adults.
