No heating needed,mine stay between 60 to 78 due to the night drop in temp in my Cham room. They say around 75 degrees is best but I have had no issues and mine are breeding so fast I need to start another 6-10 cultures on top of the 14 I already have. They all came from 2 cultures,one h & one m varietyWow that's not bad, what temp do you store them in, is any heating necessary?
When I read the directions about boiling water and thought about putting it into thin plastic cups it just didn't sound good so I just use hot tap waterI recently started breeding fruit flies for our 3 poison dart frogs. It is really easy, and you learn real quick not to pour boiling hot water into a plastic jar...like I did...and will never do again...lots of melted plastic jars and wasted time. Luckily, I hadn't added the Repashy Superfly mix yet, so I didn't waste any of that.
I have had great luck using Gatorade bottles for my cultures with a coffee filter rubber banded over the top as a lid, so far, no escapees until we go to feed the frogs.
I plan on getting a booth at our next reptile show and selling some of the cultures, since we are becoming overrun with empty Gatorade bottles...I gave up all carbonated drinks about 6 months ago, so I traded one addiction for another, soda/energy drinks for Gatorade, but at least I am able to use the mountain of empty bottles for something.
