Re: [Killietalk] Live Foods
In a pinch we can all use finely chopped shrimp, or earthworms. Most
killies go after these with real vigor when they find out how good they
taste! The trick is to keep dead food moving. I sometimes aspirate the
food from the bottom of the tank and squirt it back onto the surface.
Personally I think we all would raise our own earthworms if we knew how easy
and odorless they are when properly kept. J. Scanlan
