Microworms arrived today! Just got a few cultures started, and im all ready for Thursday! I thought the microworms would be kind of nasty, but I actually think there kind of cool, how they need almsot no care and they reproduce so fast, there kind of like pets on their own!or pets that i feed too my other pets...... hmmmm............. maybe I shouldnt think of them as pets......

I guess I could try it, but theres gravel in their tanks and Im afraid the microworms would get down there and start reproducing , which I dont want, or would they just drown after awhile?

I have no idea. I wouldn't try it because if they didn't eat them it would just foul up your water and waste the food.

In about 2 weeks your cultures will grow really fast.

Give your cultures some time..

I had a few adults that liked microworms.. I don't have my worms anymore. Didn't like them and after a little more research I found out that they can contribute to ventral finless fry.... Not a good thing.

I thought you were supposed to throw them out when they started smelling foul, which is in 3 - 7 days, or so it says on the instructions
