I got two Blue Dart frog tadpoles on May 7th and are now sub-adult
frogs. Here are a few tricks I have used in my feeder fly mix. Beech nut Brand Multigran baby cereal runs around 2 dollars at the grocery store.the ingredients consist of whole wheat flour oat flower rice flour and sunflower lecitin also wheat. I went to Lowes and got some organic bone meal I mix a little bit of that in with it as well for added calcium. I assume just from my studys from the last few month the higher the mineral content in the food the better.More than likely this attributes fertility issues as well. So basically speaking the better the diet your feeders receive the better outcome you will have. For instance my female Veiled chameleon is huge compared to what I have seen in books but she has been feed a highly nutritious diet.Next month I will be posting pictures of my findings/research.
