Too many to name
Acquired: Bred invertebrate myself

I take pride in my fruit fly culturing, because I have to keep myself motivated. It is tough!
I raise fruit flies to feed my poison dart frogs. I also use them as a snack/supplement for my green tree frogs, canyon tree frogs, green anole, and fish.
I keep my fruit flies in deli cups with a homemade media at the bottom for the flies to eat and lay eggs. The eggs develop into larvae and then cocoon before becoming adults.
I keep a smaller and larger species of fruit flies. The species are called melanogaster and hydei.
It really is rewarding to see my frogs grow big and strong all off of food I have provided without going to the pet store or relying on others (:
I encourage you to try this if you have pet frogs, spiders, fish, lizards, or other small critters that would snack on fruit flies. It is a fun challenge. Be prepared for failure initially. But you will get it down and feel like a boss!
