If you are going to move the brood to the 20 gal anyway, just breed them there. The only advantage of using the tub is cost savings over buying a tank....
Micro worms are so small that they don't even look like worms. You don't have to touch them, just use a q-tip.... Even then micro worms aren't required as long as you know you will lose some of the smaller of your brood.
Best of luck,

Plan #1 Breed them in my 20gal. Someone told me to just breed them with 3 or 4 inches of water in my 20gal so I would'ent have to move them.
Plan #2 Breed them in a tub, then move them over to the 20gal when they are 1 month old or something. But I'm thinking that would be too stressful.
4. Feeding - here is where I am a little bit confused, a little bit sure. So I am surely going to feed BBS after the first week or so, when they get bigger so they don't die of choking or something dumb like that. So I've heard to get 'infushia' (spelled it wrong) Worms creep me out, so I don't think Microworms are going to work for me! (blegghh, I don't mind spiders and amphibians, but bleggh! Worms and snails! (NO offence anyone who likes snail and worms)) So would I get some live floating moss or something like that for the infushia to grow on for them to eat? Or is that how it even grows. I was just thinking that with a bare tank bottom, it would be hard to grow live plants... maybe moss or floating plants would be better so my tank would be cleaner and the babies would have another sorce of food.
Thanks for all the wonderful help! Just wondering if I was doing everything right.
