Microworms for sale:

Next week I reculture my microworms. I hate wasting and I have a very good culture going. With minimal care your culture will last you forever!

Some info on microworms:
Microworms are grown in a culture of either oatmeal or cornmeal (I use cornmeal) and feed off yeast. They are actually nemetodes. Microworms are a very good first fry foods. Unfortunately they may cause missing ventrals if overfed so be sure to feed with something else. Anyway they'll keep your babies from starving.

What you'll get:
A microworm starter culture
A copy of Linda Olson's culturing instructions (including microworms, vinegar eels, and baby brine shrimp).

Prices:
Culture - $10
Instructions - FREE!!!
Shipping-$5

Can these be fed to adult bettas or are they too tiny?

I have fed adults microworms but they sink to the bottom and can be hard to see if you have gravel. You could try but you will need to clean right after (since they die after a day or two in water).

*bump*

I'm reculturing Tuesday! You have until then to buy some micros!

If you're ever planning on breeding you should probably buy some.

That's not always true. If you're planning on breeding you should probably get one...not trying to make $$$ here but I'm just reccomending you be prepared...you never know if they'll spawn!

Nah, I removed her. It wasn't working out, the male wouldn't build a bubblenest. But if you have some more available when I get a new female to breed, I will buy.

It takes a few weeks to get the culture up and running. I re-culture every two weeks.
