micro-worms

I had 2 large cultures of micro-worms,I read where you can put them in a fridge it will slow down thier growth and you can pull them out latter to use.
I had 3 large cultures I put in my fridge,they were in there for about a month,I could see no activity in the cultures,no wiggling masses.
I pulled one about 3 hours ago and split it into 2 smaller cultures,I put one back in the fridge and put one on the counter.
I just checked the one on the counter and I have wiggling masses again,the top is squirming with micro-worms.
If you have alot of cultures going,you can put some in the fridge for future use,just not the fridge in the kitchen,my wife would have had a fit!!
I imagine this will work for Bananna worms also.
My fridge temp. was around 36-38 degrees.
I did notice a little blackening around one edge of the container,I just took cultures from the good part,did not really lose much of the original culture.
Just thought I would share this.

omg YAY! So nice to know this! I have 4 cultures at the moment and they are going CRAZY! One is almost through the holes in the top and I am just about to introduce the boy and girl today. What a relief. Although my bf might not like the idea of having them in our fridge. lol he kinda wrinkles his nose every time I pull them out.

I have read you can spread Daphina and Brine shrimp on a sheet pan with waxpaper and freeze them into sheets,put the sheets in a ziplock,put in freezer,break off a piece and feed to your fish.

Great info! Will try this as well. P.S. is there a particular part in the fridge that you would recommend? For instance the bottom of on the racks? I do notice in my fridge there may be slight temperature difference from the bin locations and the racks.
