Ands definitely not freezing. They fish has to get to a low enough temp to freeze and the whole time it is still alive probably until it gets to the 40 degree range.
Tubifex can also survive longer in a fridge (cold temp). But I'm not sure how long. They die much much easier than bloodworms.
I usually give tubifex tiny gravel for their substrates (easier to collect the worms), use water only enough to cover them and change their water at least twice a day. OR place their container near a pump's out flow (?) so they constantly have running water.
Do not store them in a place where they would stack up (?) (like a tall cup), use wide containers so they can be spread and would only stack up to a max of 1" (less is better).... Oh, I'm talking about a fist full of tubifex, not a thumb full. Small amounts of tubifex can survive in tanks specially if the tank has a pump and they have something to cling to.
