Live blackworms rank among the best food that you can feed to your fish. Not only are they rich in protein and nutrients, but they can survive for an indefinite periods of time in a freshwater tank, which means that unlike other foods, they will never foul the water and will live until eaten by your fish.

One of the benefits to culturing blackworms is that they are one of the easiest live foods to culture. They are also hardier than many of the other live foods, and aren't nearly as prone to large die offs as daphnia or adult brine shrimp.

Of course this hardiness comes with a downside, and they don't reproduce as quickly as other commonly available live foods.

Harvesting blackworms is quite simple, and you can use either a pipette, or a turkey baster if you need a large number of worms. Anything else will likely damage the worms, and stay away from anything sharp or hard when harvesting worms.

Any worms harvested should be rinsed off before you put them in the tank, and try to avoid feeding too many worms at once to the fish.

Available in starter cultures of 5, 10, 15, 20 or 50 worms
