I feed my Big fish live black worms. They LOVE THEM! I fed some to my betta today and my one boy Said "YUK I am not touching that" The other one loves worms he eat a few small ones.

The problem with the worms I thought was if you get them from a bad source they can have parasites. I also read that dead worms can cause be problems for a fish and cause them to be really sick.

I will not feed them to my bettas any more they are too big and I don't want to cut them up YUK. I will feed them to my other fish only as treats. Discus Breeders SWARE by Black Worms. That's what some feed as the main food.

"Never feed dead blackworms to your fish, as they may harbor bacteria that could cause illness."

You need to wash the worms and care for them. Worms that float are dead.

I know this is an old thread and I'm sorry for digging this up again. I was just curious, were the black worms refrigerated or kept at room temperature? I've been attempting to breed them and have been feeding all my Betta with the worms. The refrigerated ones are a lot more sluggish and don't thrash around while being handled, whereas the breeding ones at room temperature thrash around a lot. Maybe the risk of injury is lowered by keeping them refrigerated?
