Re: Microworm culture
I use a thick mixture of unsweatened oatmeal made with water ( sold as
"ready breck" in the UK). I think the mixture has to be very think to stop
it going bad, and this is layered into the bottom of a plastic tub about
8-10mm deep. I keep the tub with a lid on, inside the hood of one of my
tanks (78f ish). After 2-3 days the cultures start producing ata good rate.
