Guppysnail Posted October 6, 2022 Share Posted October 6, 2022 (edited) My cultures are thriving. I’ve had to split them but I rarely see them eat. It makes collecting harder because they are everywhere vs being near food like my grindal worms. Things I’ve tried that eventually disappear xtreme and ocean nutrition wafers, science diet cat food (I soak all these in vitachem,seachem nourish and water until soft or they do not get eaten. Things they refuse to touch bread dry/soaked in milk 🤢stinky/ soaked in vitamin liquid mix @Torrey said they have luck with veggies. They don’t eat them until rotten and stinky but still don’t actively congregate. I use coconut coir as substrate. My grindal worms swarm the food and crawl on a plastic cover I lay over the food. The white worms do not. I know @Odd Duck has mentioned fish food. . @mountaintoppufferkeeper I seen your mass cultures on scrubby pads. I want to convert from coconut to the pads. Do you just rinse to clean? Can you walk me through how to convert and your husbandry please. Anyone else have magic food or collection methods. I hand feed one at a time for some fish so it does not need to be gobs but chasing individual worms through substrate is a pita. When I want to feed other bottom dwellers it is a downright nuisance chasing one worm at a time in the substrate. I just split these so not as dense. I now have a drawer full. But you can see they are everywhere that is not food??? Most dove down when I as rattling containers here are my grindal worms. They are so easy in comparison. I have Badis badis that only eat live worms (turn their snoot up at bbs🙄) so this is a several times a week chase. Thanks all 🤗 Edited October 6, 2022 by Guppysnail Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
