They eat just about anything, but I recently discovered that they
go bonkers over cooked rice.  Also, don't use garden soil as a culture
medium.  My first culture used garden soil and I found dead worms every
day.  My second attempt used 100% peat moss.  This culture is thriving.
Haven't found a dead worm yet.  I can't explain exactly what causes this,
but it is discussed on "The Burrow" web page (http://gnv.fdt.net/~windle/)
