Wardley Tubifex Worms - Stick to tank???

I bought some Wardley Tubifex Worms mainly because it says that the cubes will stick to the tank. I figured I could put them lower to make sure the Danios on top won't devour everything.

The problem is that they won't stick! I scrubbed the sides to remove any algea, but they don't even begin to stick.

Any thoughts as to what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks.

I use the Nutrafin version of the cubes and you do have to press relatively hard for them to stick. After a few nibbles the cube normally comes loose.

Try to break the cube into smaller pieces and stick them around the tank. I find it works a little better as one cube doesn't have 10 fish picking at it.
