Just a slightly creepy note that I have to share

So over a year ago(like a year and a half?) I got cultures of vinegar eels and microworms to try feeding the bettas to see if that would help the sick ones I kept getting to be stronger and such. Well, I completely forgot I had the vinegar eels. Like after I set them up in their neat 2 litre with apples and vinegar, I just forgot I owned them(I put them in a cabinet, pretty sure that's why). I just re-found that 2 litre today. And guess what! Not only are they still alive, they're big enough that I could totally pick them up with tweezers and feed them to my fish.

How creepy is that? Also, you can totally see their innards. Like plastic worms or something. Tempted to see how they fair against my usually ravenous betta boys and girl. O.o

xD Pretty cool, though. That just goes to show how easy those things are to care for at times. Really nasty though xD

As soon as I get a camera that will take pictures of these things, I will absolutely post them on here. I'm just blown away that they not only survived but apparently thrived for a year in a cabinet with no replenishing of nutrients or anything.

Nature is scary sometimes. o.o

Idk. I think part of it was craziness with me getting ready to go out of town and such and when I got back, well, I just never looked in that cabinet. THey don't seem to stink though. I mean, my room smells fine and when I opened the cabinet, it didn't send a waft of nasal destruction out to kill me. Maybe they eat the smell? Idk, lol. I'm still not sure what I'm going to -do- with them. I don't really have the time these days to sift out worms from apple stuff... Anyone in St. Louis want some vinegar eels? Lol
