Actually, Wright, I dragged all the way thru the seven page discourse on
raising worms that you pointed to yesterday and the guy explains a couple
of ways to raise very small earthworms.   They are the same old red worms
species, but they are very phenotypically plastic and in a dense, high-food
content medium grow about 1" long by very, very thin.   No idea how thin
tho.   Worth reading the whole (overly long and folksy) thing.
