I use elixor (or however it is spelled) It is fine wood slivers used in potted plants or whatever. It is very cheap at walmart. I think I paid $1.99 and the bag has lasted me months.

:It really does not matter if you make your own or use prepared media. You can just sprinkle on top the yeast and that should be fine. I would add two crumbled up pieces of paper towell after the yeast and press into the media. This will give a place for larve and flies to keep dry and develop; should help increase the production.

::i got a few media question.
::1)Is it better to make your own media or buy it?
::2)Which is better for the frogs?
::3)a 4 liter bag of ED's Super Instant Enhanced Fruit Fly Media is $29, how much would it (roughly/est) cost to make 4 liters of home made media with mold inhibitor?
::4) on ED's site is says "Add 1/3 cup of media and cup of hot water, swirl to mix, let cool. Add 1/16 teaspoon of bakers yeast and flies." are you adding all of that directly into the deli cup or a pot then pouring it into the deli cup?

::thanks in advance!
