Thank you for the help, guys!
The microworms in my grindal box is definitely
microworms, because I accidentally introduced them in
the grindal box when I moistened the drying media by
squirting aquarium water using the same pipette I just
used to feed microworms to apistogrammas. Up until I
did this, my grindal worm bedding was microworm free
for a long time. My main problem before was
overfeeding and a subsequent mold development. Grindal
worms were very productive back then. I could see a
lot of baby ones among varying sized larger ones.
Another way I could tell the difference between the two
is the color. The microworms in my box are not as
white as baby grindals. They are creamy colored -
closer to flesh color when there are a lot of them.
Microworms takes a while to get going strong in the box
but eventually they win over the grindals. They don't
smell bad like a rotting oatmeal culture. I have to
renew my oatmeal based microworm cultures every week in
the summer time to keep them from having a bad odor.
The microworms in the peatmoss/soil might be good as
lazy person's culture or as holding bed when your fish
are not breeding.
