Ever since I started my Plants and Terrarium journal on here, I've had fungus gnats flying around. they've been here for months, and I'm going to try to learn about them.
I made 2 test tube setups, then I caught 2 pairs of fungus gnats, and made one setup with a clump of soil.
The other test tube setup is the normal ant setup, with a water reservoir behind cotton for them to drink from.
I'm going to try to find out if they will lay eggs in cotton, how long it takes for their larvae to become flies, and other such habits, the ones that are obscure.
Here they are, in setups.

pair with soil:
Hard to see them since they're so small, I'll get better pictures later.
