Hydei Flightless fruit fly culture
Drosophila hydei are another commonly encountered fruit fly in the hobby. Hydei measure about 1/8”, and are quite a bit larger and ‘meatier’ than D. melanogaster – perfectly suited for dart frogs that prefer larger prey items, or other pets including tropical fish and small birds with similar needs.
