Microworms are known to be one of the best nutritious foods to feed your newly hatched fish. As a matter of fact, they are not actually worms, but because of their tiny size, white appearance and worm-like movements, that is where they derived their name. They are size-appropriate for baby aquarium fish such a bettas, gouramis, livebearers, tetras, danios, barbs and many others. The wiggling movements of the microworms can trigger a fry’s hunting instinct and eating reflexes. Great way to start their diet!
They are easy to maintain and culture. They can be cultured in various ways such as oats, bread and potato peelings. A single culture can easily last for 4 weeks and each culture (average size = 250ml takeaway container) will hold hundreds or even thousands of microworms! If maintained well, you will have a never-ending supply of microworms!
- They can live in a water tank for up to 48 hours.
- They are made of 76% water, 24% protein & fat – SUPER NUTRITIOUS!
- The female microworms can have 300 young in their lifetime.
- A great sign of happy microworms: if they are crawling up the walls of your container!
