I'm guessing its aerodynamics or something with the way an insects feet are designed. When Termanix sprays for bugs, they tell you that the spiders will be harder to kill because the feet design lift their bodies far enough away from the spray. I wonder if the way an Ant's, or flightless fruitflies feet are does the same on a wort. But I've definately seen the gnats get stuck. Their wings are large for their bodies and hang low enough to get trapped I guess. Black jungle has 2 types of worts, one works in PDF environment, the other doesen't. Ask them which. I can't remember right now.

:Hi,
: I had some butterworts and tried feeding them ants and the ants would walk right over them and not get caught.This was before I had any dartfrogs.I want to put a few in the 29g tank I'm making for some bicolors but I'm not sure what kind would live in a dartfrog viv.
