Microworm Culture Starter Package - Ready to feed fry
They can be used to feed betta fry, guppy fry, platy fry, corydoras fry, killifish fry, larval newts, small tadpoles and more!
- 500ml container with a cover
- 150ml Microworm culture
1. To start out your microworm culture, get a clean container and add a 1 inch layer of cooked oatmeal to the bottom of the container.
2. Let the oatmeal cool out overnight in room temperature, then mix in 1 tsp of the active dry yeast.
3. Add the microworm culture to the cooked oatmeal - this will have a slightly fermented smell which is completely normal. Slowly mix the culture into the oatmeal.
4. As the oatmeal ages, the microworms will feed off of the produced yeast. Put a lid on the container, make sure to poke some holes on the lid to let air in - otherwise the culture will die.
5. Keep the culture at room temperature 68 - 85 degrees Fahrenheit (20 - 29 degrees Celsius), and away from direct sunlight and under vents.
6.Stir the culture once a week to keep it alive.
Feeding to Fry:
1. The microworms will climb up the sides of the container, using your Q-tips, swab a small amount of microworms.
2. Swirl the Q-tip into a small cup of chlorine-free water. This method will prevent the oatmeal solution from entering your fry's aquarium water.
3. Using the pipette/dropper, suck up the microworms that will lay at the bottom of the cup, and spot feed your fry. Feed them at a location in the tank where they will easily see and have access to the microworms.
4. Microworms last 2-3 days in freshwwater. Remove any microworms after this period.
