After some bad experiences I had this summer with ants I would suggest to keep an eye on them, they absolutely LOVE both BSF and BSFL and will do anything to catch them on any living stage

First, I wonder if the fly you saw was a BSF or a similar one whose eggs hatch faster. Second I wonder if there is a possibility that some larvae crawled up looking for a way out and accidentally detached the eggs from their place (don't worry, they are not cannivals). Then I have a tip: you could t...

Oh maybe I got too late with the contact details, nevermind if it's too complicate.

I am curious about a few details that caught my attention: - What kind of fish do you raise and how big is the tank where you have them? - I saw you feed the la...
