1) Keep and maintain them like normal. A warm place isn't necessary, since you don't need them to grow fast.
2) You are prepared enough but the more variety, the better.
3) Nope they will be fine.
4) Yup! That's a good sign of a healthy culture.

You can also any liquid fish vitamins,the worms get the vitamins and the fry get the vitamins when they eat the worms.
All my worm cultures get the vitamins now,even the Grindals and WhiteWorms.

Not a bad idea. What do you do? Just add a couple drops to the worms cultures?

GuostFeather is right. You can also add probiotics, apparently.

This is great. I'm just looking at getting ready to spawn. Anything to make my fry healthier is awesome to know. 2 more things to add to the shopping list before I start. :)

Matt, believe it or not, you are one of the people here I count on for good information. You've helped me a lot and everything I have learned from you has been very beneficial. Thank you!

I might try adding some probiotics to my grindal worms and white worms cultures. I feed all my cultures a very high quality and high protein cat food, so I may try soaking this in some probiotics and seeing how it goes.

Had a bit of difficulty with velvet and have been medicating fish a lot lately so wondering if the probiotics may help with their immune system and recovery.
