Re: KT Digest V2 #239 worms
Since the subject of cleaning worms has come up on the lists again,
wayyyy back when, I remember hearing an old timer (that is someone
predating one's self) mention that a person could put a piece of raw
potato in a container of tubifex worms (and presumably black worms). The
idea was that the worms would eat the potato, purging their systems.
First has anybody tried this? Secondly does this work? Thirdly, even
though I have had good luck keeping worms washed and usually healthy in
a refrig., can they be lightly fed? There is a good article on raising
them at the Carolina Biological supply net site (Aug. 96) recommending
the use of fish food tablets. I know of a local aquarist who has used
dry dog food in ten gallon tanks with the worms and some peat moss on
the bottom. Has anyone tried anything else?
