Does anyone have information on a bulk wholesale source of tubifex worms?
Not the so called black worm readily available. I want the type formerly
used before the black type came on the market.
My objection to the black type is they are too active. Readily escaping from
cone feeders and moving about the tank. Where they invariably end up
infesting the mops, clustering about the top, Which interferes with egg
picking. They are larger in diameter and seem to have a tougher casing.
Smaller fish will not eat them, whereas they will eat the old type. With the
old type little or no problem existed in the worm escaping after being
ingested. The black type die if washed in my local tap water. I am forced
to use rain water for washing. This problem is nonexistent with the old type.
While my requirement is one or two pounds per feeding, I can handle a
five or ten pound minimum order and sell the balance.
