Microworm-scrape the off the side and dip them in clean water.
Wait for a minute or so, until all the worm fall to the bottom and slowly dump out the water until u have a little water left with the worm.( must have a steady hand)
Or
The same set from above but instead of pouring out the water,
Use a eye drop, turkey baster or any type of baster to pick them off the bottom of the cup and into your tank.
Last
Scrape the edge and straight into the tank(down fall it will dirty up the tank)

Microworm will take about 1-3 week for it to be ready to harvest.

No they're coming to me already cultured, with yeast and instructions, so they'll be ready when they get here :)

Thanks CFB!

Oh I c.
Will just let them settle down for a few hours.
They will start crawling along the side.
Then u can start harvesting them.

I love your 1 week pics. I wish my camera was so good. They look really healthy. BYW, I just scrape my microworms off the side with my finger and swish it in the water. Doesn't take long for the babies to know that your finger is a good thing...

@GreenTea: I love this! I really cannot wait to see their color pattern and it sounds like things are going according to plan! I love to see them dart across the tank. It looks like they "dart...recharge, dart...recharge" that is too cute!

Just to add, your apple or mystery/apple snail is so bright lightly colored. (The BEST) Where did you get him/her and how much did you pay for him/her?

Hey Cajun, I haven't seen you on at all for awhile, kinda wondered if you'd left! I'm sorry about your fish :( So sad. Maybe I'll have one that suits you in a few weeks.

Thanks tpo...My camera's actually a few years old and at 8 megapixels seems wimpy compared to the amazing digital cameras they have now, but I'm into photography and spent a lot of time sitting on my butt and trying to get a clear shot so I'm glad it's appreciated :)

BL I just got them from the petsmart near me, for some reason they had tons of young and brand new apple snails. They're 1.99. I have a "blue" apple snail in there as well. That yellow one is about the size of a nickel, so that gives some reference for fry size...

My cleaning siphon broke so I haven't been able to clean the tank properly, just suck out uneaten food, I should be getting one tomorrow. No dead fry, all is well. 8 days in! How many more days until they're adults? :P
