Subject: Blackworm breeding

I was wondering if it would be possible if you could e-mail me back a
little info on the techniques used for breeding blackworm. I work in a
zoo environment and we are looking at the possibility of breeding the
blackworm (and brine shrimp) ourselves for our breeding programmes for
critically endangered species.

The sort of things I need to know if how many/what size tanks would we
need, how do you get the process started, airation, food, time span for
breeding, cost etc

Thanks for your time
