Re: NFC: scatterbrain-proof live food rasing
I use grindal worms, if you have to be away from them, just put em in the refrig
to slow down their metabolism. They work great for me and the fish love em.
Also wingless or flightless fruit flies.
Also there is safety in numbers, keep 5 or 6 cultures going at one time, if one
then there is a back up.
