Thank you Myates! I got starter cultures a week ago & wasn't sure I was doing things right, so I used your plastic bag trick and they popped right up.
ok, I'm very new to this. Have had my works started for a week now and they seem to be growing well and now I have a few questions.
- My fry are 9 weeks old, so they do not need these worms anymore. They love the NSL pellets and frozen treats they get daily. What should I do with my worms until I need them? Keep them in the warm, dim place I have them and re-culture as needed or is there another way to keep them when not is use for awhile?
- I have walter and micro worms right now. When I have another batch of fry will these worms, along with bbs be enough or should I look into banana worms or vinegar eels?
- Final question. Do I need to feed them? I know they are eating the oatmeal and yeast in the culture, but should I freshen it up with yeast & water every now and then or are they fine until they need re-cultured?
- Got another one. The smell. I've read repeatedly about how they stink. So far They don't stink to me. The smell makes me think of warm sour dough bread. Is this normal?
