Does effect me at all.
You go to do what you got to do.
I don't flush.
Just feed them to my other pet.
Kill a live to save another.
Even if you feed them pellet.
Think where the pellet come from.

Thank you for clarifying, I agree that feeding them to a turtle would be much better than flushing, haha.

Yep.
My red ear need to eat.
But some people can't kill.
So I suggest flushing.
Or giving them to someone to do the dirty work.

Ands definitely not freezing. They fish has to get to a low enough temp to freeze and the whole time it is still alive probably until it gets to the 40 degree range.
Tubifex can also survive longer in a fridge (cold temp). But I'm not sure how long. They die much much easier than bloodworms.

I usually give tubifex tiny gravel for their substrates (easier to collect the worms), use water only enough to cover them and change their water at least twice a day. OR place their container near a pump's out flow (?) so they constantly have running water.

Do not store them in a place where they would stack up (?) (like a tall cup), use wide containers so they can be spread and would only stack up to a max of 1" (less is better).... Oh, I'm talking about a fist full of tubifex, not a thumb full. Small amounts of tubifex can survive in tanks specially if the tank has a pump and they have something to cling to.

@bettalover2033: you're very welcome. Sorry I didn't answer in your thread .....
