As of this moment there are still two larvae... I am hopeful that they will live, but I am still not sure what they can/ will eat...

It is too cold here far mosquitoes right now... Had some a few weeks ago though, because I moved... Blah.

Picture of the two survivors... Fingers crossed! The one on the left looks to have a deformity and the one on the right is almost green... I'm wondering if there are glow lotls in the family lines...


I'm pretty sure that squiggly thing in the bottom in the bottom of the picture is a detritus worm... They came out of a Marimo ball I had in the water... The lotls have been eating them for now, but there aren't many left. I think I can get black worms from a lfs for pretty cheap, I'm hoping they will eat those...

I once kept baby garter snakes alive feeding them black worms. I don't see why they wouldn't work for your babys. Best of luck!

Wow! They are so adorable! I hope they survive! I wonder if the microworms are ever going to come?

Aw!! I'm so sorry, but at least you have 2!! You could name them Ruth and Toothless Jr. <3 How big are they? Remember to chop off the blackworms' heads if the babies are small as Bettas.

Over hundreds of bettas die in their small, dirty cups each day. Only you can help them live. Research and then save them, today!

Maybe ask your local pet store if they sell the microworm cultures? They usually don't advertise it, you have to ask

OMG they are so cute! fingers crossed!

Well I still haven't gotten the micro worms... Even if I get them now they will likely have all parished..

The larvae are still alive, tried encouraging them to eat frozen daphnia again, not sure if they are going for it or not, hard to tell when they eat from above. Lol

They are a little less than half an inch long at this point, about the width of my thumbnail.

I've asked all my local stores if they carry any live food, no luck, not even bbs eggs, and the place that has the black worms is a tiny hole in the wall place that has sporadic hours due to being run and staffed by one woman. Lol
