That's actually one of my pet peeves with white worms in general: they
sink like rocks and burrow into the substrate (most of my tanks are heavily
planted). With more active fish, or ones that'll pick them out of a dish
on the floor that's fine, but for a number of fish, they might as well not
exist. For example, I never could get Riv. xiphidus interested, even in
picking them out of a floating worm feeder or out of java moss (although
that seemedto work best). Nope, things that float or swim are the best,
particularly if they can live in aquaria for a while!
