Tincman Herps Smoothie Media – After 8 days

Today’s post is post #10 in #30PostsHathSept.

Now for a follow-up on Tincman Herps Smoothie media.  I have not taken photos of the cultures everyday, mostly because I didn’t think of doing that until now.  But I have taken sporadic photos at given times to view the differences.

Here are the original photos after I completed the mixes.  (Read more here)

Top- Tincman Herps Smoothie Media

Bottom- Saurian Media

Here is the comparison in color between the two.


Here are some photos 6 days in.  Top 2 are Tincman Herps Smoothie media; Bottom 2 are Saurian’s media

It is hard to see, but notice the difference in amount of larvae!  Tincman Herps already had a bunch of larvae as Saurian did not.

Here are some photos this morning after 8 days.  The first 2 photos are of Tincman Herps Smoothie Media & the last 3 are of Saurian’s Media.  Saurian’s media is catching up but Tincman Herps media still has many more.

The only downside right now is that my fly cabinet has been stinkier than usual.  This could also be due to the hotter than average temperature &/or what stage they are at right now.  I did a sniff test and the cultures with Saurian’s media smelt better than Tincman Herps, but that will vary from person to person and could change as the cultures progress.

I will keep you posted on production.
