Black/brown worms have been linked to tuberculosis and other bacterial and parastatic diseases, as soon as they enter the water they IMMEDIATELY give your fish diseases.

Frozen and freeze dried bloodworms are 100% safe, I just stay away from live foods as much as possible, except for microworms, vinager eels, and infusoria.

I stay away from live foods too, mostly because they totally gross me out but like dmhalfmoon said, they can carry diseases.

1) They are GROSS!

2) They carry diseases that I would rather stay away from.

3) They are a lot of maintenance, like having to rinse them every day, or other things.

Exactly, microworms are as far as I go, but they smell pretty bad.

Thats one reason I wouldn't attempt breeding but there are other reasons too, like no space, limited funds...

Ya those are some major things when it comes to breeding, ofcourse some peoples addiction got a hold of em, we breeders have seen people breed them in 2 LITER SODA BOTTLES!! The female was killed in most cases.
