Greatest conditioning food besides mosquito larvae.
Many ignorant store clerks still call them tubifex worms. The really
braindead ones call them tubiflex. Most places, the hazards of human sewer
worms has gotten Tubificids banned and replaced with farm-raised CA
Blackworms. The stores still use the old, incorrect name, 25 years later.
Try http://aquaticfoods.com/ as they have a good special going now.
Also order two worm boxes and divide a pound between them (or one and order
a half pound). If you rinse and change water every time you feed, they will
last for many weeks in the refrigerator. Keep the water so they can reach
the surface with their tails, which is the purpose of the worm box with mesh
tray (more water but still shallow -- easy to rinse, too). Chlorine does not
seem to bother them.
Great article on them at the Carolina Bio site, BTW.
