I have not found any legal issues, yet, but came across this interesting
site that suggests why *Tubifex tubifex* might be unpopular with a group
with lots more political clout than we have.
"Whirling disease" is a problem with only cold-water species, as I
understand it, and not a problem for most tropical fish. The trout
hatchery and fishing business is huge compared to killifish interests,
so I can understand why *Tubifex* are not at all welcome in their waters.
If we do get a supply going again, I can see an educational program to
accompany the distribution of the worms could be very important. It is
easy to be sure none go down a storm drain or otherwise get into local
waters if we really understand the problem. No?
PS. Thanks to Lee for the great pics of the "keepers" and to Leo and
Howard for the paint strainer and coffee-filter suggestions. [Those
latter two should work just as well for blackworms.]
