Re: Live Foods Digest V3 #131

Hello Tsen,

I dont have first hand experience with feeding white worms exclusively,
but I have not seen any deleterious effects feedin Grindal worms for a
month at a time, to condition killies for spawning.

In my experience killie fry does not grow as fast on microworms alone,
as on a mixture of microworms and brine shrimp nauplii. But it probably
depends on the kind of fry.

> Hi, just as a thought, I'm wondering if all those websites out there stating that white worms are 'fatty' and not to feed them too often know what they are talking about? Has anyone had any experience feeding white worms daily? I have tried it with one baby platy, and it is triple the size of its siblings. Of course I dont know if its organs are undergoing 'fatty degeneration' or not:P
> Also, is it OK to feed microworms exclusively in the first week of fry? Brine shrimp eggs are getting VERY expensive here....
