Microworms have no nutritional value. I prefer BBS.

BBS has never caused an issue with SBD in my experience. Many others have noticed it as well. It could be because I keep my tanks at a higher temperature and therefore the metabolism of the fry speeds up.

I used microworms for the first two weeks of a spawn last year and I ended up with missing ventrals. With BBS I rarely get deformities.

BBS has never been proven to cause SBD. Microworms have been linked to ventral issues. Don't get me wrong they're good in their own way (quick easy meal/snack for the fry) but you must clean the tank bottom REALLY well or there is a chance of missing ventrals.

We agree to disagree :)

Using microworms increases the possibility because they spend more time at the bottom where bacteria grows. Using them is a risk for that. As far as growth they keep fry alive but no more.

Over feeding is cause by the holder not the culture
Fry do grow will with them.
Faster then bbs on the first week and 1/2
Then Microworm will get useless around the three week
Growth rate will slow down
