Default Fruitflies on water......hold the ice!!!

That's right .....I said it!!!!

Fruitflies on water I am quite sure is not a new invention.

I am always looking for clever ways to feed my crew.

So as I was feeding my chameleons, I said to myself "Self....drop a fruitfly in the larvae containing shallow water and see what happens.

So no sooner than I dropped the fruitfly did one of the larva grab a fly.

This is a light bulb moment!!!!

So I added more flies to another container. They are eating them.

Now I have all 3 species eating fruitflies on water.

So the next time your larvae ask for fruitflies.....you might want to ask

Shall I put that on water or hold the ice???
