Hello guys,
soon, as some of you may know, I get 2 juvenile newts land. So before too ordered a portion of fruit flies without wings to feed them. In order to always have food available I intend to start a culture of these! However I have doubts as to the substrate that I use, so I have an opinion of yours!

Which of the following will be the best:

- muesli
- basic fruits/Such as bananas and apples
- Add water or white wine

Or

-Potato puree flakes
-Sugar
-Wheatgerm
-Some dried yeast.
-Add water or juice

Yes I know, azhael, I took the recipe for one of your posts, and also saw the movie! The question is where will I get the wheatgerm and dried yeast!? So I posted another recipe, to confirm whether it is viable, because he is easier to get all the ingredients!
thanks

    My axie is acting woerd he was a rescue as stated in a different post he got better and now seems to be deteriorating again...again all tank conditions are OK and as should be. He seems to have some black dapple like pattern under his bottom lip? Is that normal? And his two back feet have a little wierd growth? Almost? Tiny tiny tiny lump. His capillaries in his feathers also appear darker and more visible. Any help would be appreciated
