Talking Thinking about breeding Blue and Aqua.

Okay, so I need money. And I've been thinking about breeding Blue and Aqua really really soon. I decided to hold off on Merlin for a second batch. But I had a couple questions.
1. Blue and Aqua have been living next to each other for a while, so the only conditioning I would have to do now is feed them blood worms, right?
2. I have NO way to get live food for the fry, would crushing up blood worms into a powder be okay for them? Or is there any other thing I could do?

Other than that, I'm pretty much ready. I'm not expecting a huge batch since it will be my first time, so I'm going to use a 10 gallon. Oh and one more thing, why do people use Styrofoam cups?
Thanks guys.

I just read in a new book tonight that if you have live plants, they produce micro organisms that the fry can feed off of. You can also grow your own vinegar eel culture by using an apple and apple cider vinegar.

I just reread the page and it says you have to have a starter culture. Darn, I thought this was a good way to save money! lol

lol me too. Something I'll probably look into for the future though. I think I can get some microworms. Do you know if frozen brine shrimp or worms is okay? Or does it have to be live?

Microworms and BBs are the best. I reccomend the San Fransisco bay Shrimpery. Also you'll need a vial of eggs.

I've always heard that it should be live but Mr Vampire will have to answer that.
