Microworm cultures & Baby Bettas

Can you get them from stores or do you have to buy them online? X.x I can't find any at my local petsmart, any suggestions?

Is there anything else I can substitute for food other than microworms? like liquifry or something because I have that stuff X.x

Some LFS carry them...some don't. I don't think retail stores do.

Here is a link to aquabid.

Also, if you know anybody local or someone who wants to give you some for free, you can culture your own using wet oatmeal and yeast in a small container. All you need is a very few to start the culture.

Ohh. I didn't know that. If your teacher can give you some, that'd be great. Then you can just culture your own using the method I already posted.

Also, rumor has it that if you wait long enough, you CAN culture your own microworms from just corn meal, water, and yeast...but that it takes upwards of a month or more to happen. I imagine you need them now though, right?

Does your LFS sell baby brine shrimp? Or even eggs? Then you can buy a hatchery and feed them brine.
