Thanks for the great information everyone! I've been using the fruit fly media from Josh's Frogs, and it smells fantastic (like baked apples), but I believe it is nothing more than potato powder, powdered sugar, nutritional yeast and some live yeast, and cinnamon, but no ingredients are listed, so I can't be sure (that also bugs me). I think once I finish up what I have, I will switch to the Repashy Superfly. I'm also ordering the Repashy vitamin powders, Calcium plus and vitamin A, and I might grab some superpig too. When I get tadpoles, I'll be feeding them the repashy fish foods I already have for my fish, among other things.

I'll also start working on other food cultures.
