Question about haveing microworms

I'm not breeding anything right now but might try it out once I'm more familiar with bettas but someone on CL is giving away starter cultures of microworms and was wondering if I should get some for the future?
Would they still be okay to use?
It seems pretty simple to keep them alive to me.
Let me know what yall think!

And I have a neighbor who breeds guppies and I'm sure they wouldn't mind to have some!

I would definately get some. It's always good to have a strong culture going once you decide to breed. :]

or you can just not add the yeast so it will take longer for them to grow?

i just re read your post above and realized you were saying yeast HELPS with the smell and doesn't make it smelly. lol

As long as it's not so smelly its distrubing.
Does it need light? Because I can put it in a drawer I hve all my aquarium supplies in if that won't hurt it.

hahaha :p It smells like...yeast.

Anyways, shove it in a drawer and forget about it. OOPS I mean that is what I did You should anyways, when you first get your culture. Keep them in a cool, dry area to avoid bacterial growth which includes mold.
