Re: BlackWorms and Keeping
I keep black worms at room temperature for culturing. I keep them in a
shallow tank into which I put all the mulm from my other tanks. These worms
form clumps or masses in the tank and then extend out "waving arms" in the
tank. I cultured them from some black worms I found in the bottom of my
moina culture tub outside. They have multiplied, though not real quickly,
but they provide a good snack every now and again for my fish. Now, I don't
push these worms for production. From the big discussion before it sounds
like you can really start pumping them out, but I like just feeding them
mulm and watching them do their thing. The only trick is separating them
from the mulm. Not to hard but takes a few steps. I just go in, suck out a
clump with a large baster, squirt them into a small dish, then suck them out
with a pipette and put them in RO to feed to my fish.
Just my $0.02 worth while I have a big mouth. (I'm on spring break this
week and recovering from a nasty respiratory infection, so I am at the
computer quite a bit.) Lol take care all.
