It's like 5:30 in the morning, I've been cleaning fish tank glass, changing filter cartridges, topping off tanks and feeding snails. I'm about to go into my worm cultures and do a little house keeping, maybe start a couple of new cultures.

I do all this on Saturdays / Sundays but I can't sleep!! So getting a head start.

I was just sitting here thinking I should really be using this time to clean my tank.
I plan on going to PetSmart tomorrow to look at their Bettas.
If I bring one home I want his home to be ready!

What are worm cultures? If you don't mind answering. :)

Micro worms, Banana worms and Vinegar worms. There are others, but those are the ones I have. All are near-microscopic worms that live in decaying organic matter. I feed them to my fry, along with baby brine shrimp. Mine are kept in cool-whip containers and every now and then I'll start a new batch, or culture. It's just instant oatmeal (Cooked and cooled), yeast and paprika. The new food is mixed together and I place a little scoop of worms from one of the already started cultures in the middle. They'll start eating up the mix and breed like crazy. Then I ignore them. They'll do their own thing for a long while, sitting on a shelf in a box with all the other containers, and all I have to do is scrape a few worms off the side of the container with a q-tip and add them to the fry tank. Very easy to keep and easy to feed. I only really bother when the old cultures get really runny, means they've destroyed the food source and need something new to eat. Though I have heard of cultures being forgotten and found years later, still alive.

Wow.. that was the long answer, wasn't it? Oh well, crash course on microworms!

I just went through my cultures and restarted two of them.. and now I'm bored again >.< Maybe a glass of wine will help me sleep.

That actually sounds pretty awesome! If I ever need to whip me up a batch of micro worms I can refer to this post. :P


Wine sounds like a grand idea, make me a glass too!

It's really just for fry. Adults ignore them, from what I've seen. But if you ever decide to breed.. yep, that'll work. :)

What should I be doing?

Well, in my teachers' opinion, I should be studying for midterms lol, but I know most of the material anyway, and I studied yesterday for awhile cuz I was stuck in auditions for a school play (I auditioned to be a crew member, which took about 10 minutes, but I was stuck there until either everyone was done crew and cast or a parent picked me up, so I studied for a good bit of time). So instead I've been screwing around on this site and fantasizing about the nano planted setup I'm starting this weekend lol.
