Hi all,

They are <"very round, and not very active">. You can see them below on the dark plastic.



They also smell, a sweet, minty smell, with slightly unpleasant undertones.

That’s some massive grindal worms, mine get nowhere near as big as that.

I didn’t get them from TA but they are German so may be the same thing. They’re very good, well accepted by all fish including Poecilocharax Weitzmani which can be very fussy.

As for the black worms I haven’t found a fish that doesn’t love them, they suck them up like spaghetti.

cheers

Do you rehydrate/soak the black worms before feeding, or just feed them dry?

Did you buy loose or the cubed version? I’ve only used the cubes, I either stick this directly to the glass or soak them and mash these up a bit to form a paste which then sinks for my corydoras.

Yeah I bought 25g of the cubes.

Hi all,
Do you think they could be cultured in my rainwater butt that I use for water changes? The daphnia population is doing very well in there.

cheers
I think you probably could, if the bottom isn't entirely clean.

cheers Darrel
