Mine arent going fast enough right now. Re-did all but 2 like 4 days ago and only 1 culture is use-able so far, but isn't getting enough to feed everyone in there. I've noticed that sprinkling in some extra yeast will help bring them up the sides, but that isn't working either right now.

Suggestions? I'm wondering if I'm not making the oatmeal moist enough for them. but I dont want to make it too soggy lol
I've had these cultures going for 6 months and havent had any issues until these past few weeks.
Making the oatmeal quite wet and putting it somewhere warm should get them going. I found that with my 'lazy' microworm cultures, if I added in some water over their porridge, put on a lid with only a couple of air holes and put it somewhere warm the worms would start crawling up the sides a lot faster.

I've also found they tend to be at their most prolific when you no longer need them haha.

Haha my microworms probably spend their lives going "We're drowning", "We're suffocating", "We're burning". Good to hear that it worked though. Always seems like your cultures never take off until you no longer need them.

I'm trying to talk to my mom about bringing my 10 gallon so I can attempt some sort of sorority Dx

My perdicament is that I'd love one of these guys, but I currently have 3 males and one unsexed baby. If I get the 10 gallon, if the baby ends up being a female, I could start a sorority with a girl or two from your spawn...

I tried talking Mike into letting me start a micro worm culture, but since all of our shrimp critter cultures have been a bust, he won't let me. LOL

True! Worms are super easy!
I have mine in betta cups and all I do for upkeep is reculture.
I'll give you a starter culture when I come up skyewillow, then he'll have to allow it lol
