Fruit flies, drosophelia melanogaster, are the perfect live food for smaller reptiles and amphibians like anoles and poison dart frogs. It’s also the perfect food for young and smaller fish. Note: it’s advised to get two cultures, and by alternating feeding from each one can allow some flies to lay eggs in the culture medium. done right, this can give a long lasting supply of live food.
