    LOL! Either take a picture right before feeding or several days hence. They look dirty with pulverized whatever all over their leaves!

    yeah, looks like you have the latest bottle with their new cartoon fish logo and cheezy pun on the front.
    That's funny they threw a random wizard on the back just to say that
    Everything else is manufactured in China and Japan- might as well outsource Beta Bites there too.

    I get white mold when the portion of food I give the leaf is too much for it to handle and it is in too high of humidity. I normally just take off the moldy chunk with tweezers. Some people use isopropyl alcohol to kill off the fungus. I'd recommend smaller pieces of food. I now grind my pellets into a powder, pick a little up with a tweezer, and wipe some on the leaves.

    Some people also sprinkle cinnamon on the affected areas. I would just take a pair of tweezers and manually remove the cottony growths.

    You convinced me too. I went out and got wingless fruit flies the other day.
