I have raised my own earthworms for composting purposes. They are laying lots of eggs and there are lots of babies, very, very tiny.
I know earthworms are used for bait for fishing, but can they be fed to Betta fish?
I am pretty sure you can, i would imagine bettas love to eat earth worms. I used to give my oscar nightcrawlers that i caught in my backyard. But, after some time, i think he got sick, so i stopped. I heard some worms do carry diseases and parasites, so maybe that was the reason in my situation. But if you're confident your worms are clean, then i dont see a problem feeding your bettas with it.
I chop up red worms and feed to my Betta and other species without any issue and I will toss one in whole for the BN plecos on occasion-they love em too....I toss them in dirt and all-but I have dirt based systems so you can't tell and its just added nutrients for all the plants anyway......
Oh good, thank you. I have my earthworms in my classroom right now (I'm a teacher), but I may take some of the babies out and start a new compost bin at home - that way I can monitor them closely (right now, all the kids fingers and hands are in the bin, and that may not be very healthy for the fish).
Doesnt sound like a huge problem to me. I have yet to try it though. In the summer, I usually feed whole mosquitos that I kill when they go for blood from me (Pesky things XD) and larvae from aged water behind my shed and feed them to my community tank and betta without problems.
