Try this site out they have same day shipping (which is free if you spend $20 or more) not certain but a cake decorating place might have the powder coloring

Hi,
Just curious why you want red media. The blue stuff in the Carolina media is mold inhibitor.

How about VERY red wine vinegar??

Darts with parasites are analogous to mixed tanks, there are no known benefits to the frogs with either.

I have not had good luck with the black jungle media. It quickly becomes ran over with mold. The inhibitor does not seem to have much of an affect.

the vinegar is a good idea Rich, ill give it a try, and thanks for all the sights everyone, i wated red media because well mainly it will be my own, i havent seen any red media out there, so i wanted to give it a shot, the first ones i made, worked fine but the color faded from the media in about 2 weeks, so ill have to try the vinegar or the powders i can find. thanks for the help everyone.

try colored sugar, you can find it on baking stuff on any grocery store..

The blue color is to monitor larva development, making it easier to see them.

For those that want designer colors of media, you might try Kool-Aid, lots of colors available.

Just the plain Kool Aid is what you want to use, it's only a few cents a pack. It's the stuff grandmother used to dump 2 lbs of sugar in to make....and then wonder why us kids wouldn't "settle down" !

Another good source of coloring agents would be Easter Egg dye, but I don't know readily avaliable it would be.

the blue is only food coloring not mold inhibitor. just plaind old food grade food coloring. never talk to the help desk, go right to the lab. anything else is speculation.

Try using cranberry juice instead of water.

What about red food coloring? That's definitely safe and easy.
