Worms..! was created by Jonlate (Jon Late)
I have read a number of post recently about worms..
I know what white worms are as my batch are struggling at the moment, but my fish liked them as a treat.
Grindal (?) worms I have never seen. Are they hard to raise?
But what about black worms, garden worms, compost heap worms etc etc
What is the difference in all these worms? Are they all fish friendly?
Can I just did a few out the compost heap and drop them in the tank or do they need to be purged someway beforehand?
Will they add desease to the tank if not prepared correctly?
Do you put in whole worms or cut them into bits?
What about freezing the bits in ice cube trays?

What's the story on worms and fish? :dry:

Any worms i find in the garden go straight into the pond ,the koi go mad for them , dont know about putting them in a tank ,did read somewhere that you need to keep them for 24 hrs before feeding to allow them to poo out any nasty food they may have eaten

Grindals are a little smaller than the whites but you culture them the same
Earthworms are a great source of food. I don't do the whole leave for 24 hrs thing. A quick rinse under the tap and in they go

I suppose it depends on the size of the fish ,but my koi in the pond would love them at 6inches long ,but then some of the koi are 2ft long
