What to do with kritter keepers??

I finally have my tanks near completion of their cycles. What can I do with the kritter keeper I have heaters for them they stay 76-78 degrees. I really don't want to keep any more Bettas in them. I was thinking of keeping one as a quarantine tank of course. The other I was hoping to actually maybe use for growing live foods. I doubt there is anything that would fit that bill but it's just an idea. So anything else that could live in a KK?

You could do a NPT with shrimp and snails. :3
I was going to say to have an ADF in one, but you've already got two. xD

Depending on the size of the Kritter Keeper, you could probably keep other things in it. Otherwise, it would probably make a great hospital tank.
Either way, you should keep it around I say.

I ever get rid of my small tanks, I just store them. Like right now, I have 4 females my small tanks, 3 in QT and one in Recovery. I still have 2 spares, in case some of my males get sick. Or even if I come across someone ready to flush a Betta, I know I have a spare tank at home to take him and find him a home. So yeah, I'd keep them lol

Yeah I wasn't considering getting rid of them or anything. I'm really curious about culturing some live food for my tanks. I'm thinking something Bettas/Frogs could both chomp on hehe.

You're not too far from me. Just put it outside with some water. You'll get mosquito larvae (and maybe some other things) in no time. Those make great betta live foods. I've done it a few times, and my boys can't seem to get enough! Great mosquito control those guys are!

I agree with Koimaiden, all my girls now go nuts for mosquito larvae. Good source of food and they are easy to get.

Maybe grow out some bloodworms? That would be another nice treat to have.

What's the chance of them catching parasites from the mosquito larvae? The blood worm idea intrigues me actually. I'm just not sure what I would need for that?

i'd rather grow my own brineshrimp than do bloodworms. i heard bloodworms takes a lot of effort and they die fast
