Re: Collecting Grindal Worms
From: "Mach Fukada"
> when I fooled around with grindals I found that they were not as
prolific in cool weather. In cool periods they would produce fewer and
larger worms. As it got warmer they would produce many small worms.... It
almost seems as if it was a mutation of the normal white worms, which
allowed them to withstand higher temps.
That's an interesting observation Mach. Could it be that the worms are
putting their food into growth rather than into reproduction during the cool
times? Would this parallel winter months when growth might make more "sense"
than reproduction when food would be less available for young'uns?
The dry months in some Aphyosemion/Fundulopanchax may do something of the
same for some killies. (One could speculate that at any rate.)
All the best!
