Need Creative ideas...

So, I need to get some food cultures for when I spawn my pair, but I HATED the smell of the micro worms I had before. Yuck. They stunk up my room.

So, where could I keep them somewhere where I can't smell them but have easy access? :P

Any help is appreciated. :)

You could keep them right outside your window and....JK. Do you have a bathroom very close by?

Mine don't stink

Seriously though, I switched from oatmeal to cornmeal and my cultures don't smell at all! Even thought they are a little overdue to be cultured. Right now I keep mine on the lowest shelf on my fish shelf and I keep the containers inside a "knee-high" nylon to keep flies away. I think the nylon also keeps the smell from getting out.

The best place to keep them is in a dark cupboard like under a sink. I'm trying to clear out a section in my closet to keep them in there.

Ah ha! The oat meal might have been the issue.

I might be able to find a spot for some...

Since I don't use them I'm no help :P

But I plan on purchasing one in a few weeks for my next spawn in early November (probably a birthday spawn since my Bday is Nov, 7th).

BTW when are you getting your girls? I really want to see what their fry will look like :)

Hehe. Hey just a favor could you include a starter culture for the microworms if we swap fry? I'll try to include something extra myself.
