Non-member submission from [klaus.schoening at jungle_org (Segeberger)]
I currently have a ten gallon with blackworms that has been set up for
three weeks. I have a sponge filter that is elevated from the bottom
by about two inches. I introduced daphnia to eat the bacteria and
cloudy stuff given off by the worms. It seems to be working. I threw
in a banana peel and the worms are living on the banana peel. I think
you have to be careful overfeeding with this because bananas contain a
lot of sugar, but growth of both worms and daphnids so far has been
healthy. I got the worms from Kordon, and they are free of those
nematodes you often get from the LFS.
-> Now one suspicion I have is that I may have the wrong
-> These worms are black,
-> up to 1/4 inch long, have no visible segmentation. They are sold by
-> LFS' as california blackworms. The care recommended for them is a
-> daily rinsing in cold water and storage in the refrigerator.
-> That last item is my second suspicion. Is room temperature
-> too hot for these animals?
-> Any help appreciated.
