Well, you would have to cut it up... which is disgusting... but maybe they would eat it. I think by "worms" he was referring to glass worms, bloodworms, california black worms and tublifex worms, which are safely prepared, frozen and available at most pet stores. They are specifically for pet fish. Remember, anything you get from the outdoors could carry parasites... And worms sold as fish bait can carry chemicals and parasites. Never feed them Red Wrigglers, they release chemicals that taste bad and may be dangerous.

Are we talking about mosquito larvae for fry or for conditioning the adults? If it's fry, they'd have to be a few months old I'd think to eat chopped up nightcrawlers. Unless you put the nightcrawlers through a blender. Ewwwww. Please forget I said that.

>.< I know. But honestly, I can't think of any other way to make earthworms small enough for fry. And some people do it to make homemade fish food. I would never use that blender for anything else ever ever again, that's for sure.

You know, I was feeling a bit peckish earlier but strangely, not now.
