I put white worms and blackworms in mine. They then poke out the sides. and the fish come along and pull them out and eat them.

Great idea! I might have to get some for that purpose too.

I have never run into any issues with blackworms. As long as you rinse them and store them correctly they are fine. All my fry are raised on blackworms once they get big enough, and my wild bettas get fed a diet predominately made up of them.

ChoclateBetta, I don't really feed any specific amount. I just chuck some in and if they overeat I just fast them for a day or so until their stomach shrinks down again.

I forgot to say, our main importer into Australia feeds blackworms and she has some expensive and healthy fish. I've found they are good for getting size on your fry.

Here is the video I took of my fish rack/room. I did not realise I sounded so bogan and awkward until I watched it as I hate talking to a camera. Embarrassing. Turn the volume down and it's not so bad.

Also, watch it in HD otherwise you will just see fuzzy blobs swimming around in large fuzzy square blobs.

Quick update on my Guitar fry...
Fry are a week old and doing good. I think there is anywhere from 50-100 fry, hard to tell. I'm having a hard time keeping the ammonia under control so I've started doing 25% water changes using a drip system. The spawn is in a 10 gallon filled just over half way. It has lots of live plants so I'm hoping that will help the ammonia issue. Fry are currently eating infusoria and walter worms. I've tried feeding BBS but the fry just ignore them. I think they're still too small to eat them. I also noticed the BBS die really quick once in the tank. Maybe because the soft water
