Feeding Live Food

My LFS sells live food. I was considering buying some live worms. Does anyone feed their fish live worms?

Not all fish like them. One time I had a black skirt tetra go for them once. He loved it. My Jack Dempsey also gets them as a snack about once a week and she loves them. I've found my smaller fish like other tetras and barbs are not really interested in them though.

Depends on the worm.

Earthworms my fish love. Takes my rams most of a day to get through one.

I also feed black worms to my killis for breeding purposes and occasionally pop a few in for the tetras and Rams that fight over them.

Like to feed blackworms or brine shrimp once in a while

Only problem j have is that it can be messy or smelly. Also they don't keep for very long.

Due to that I'm choosing frozen foods more often

I have a 1 gallon set-up to "farm" my own blackworms. I bought a small portion from my LFS, I feed a pinch of food every other day, and I just too off the water. I feed them to my fish once a week. My fish love em. It took my guppies a day to get used to them, but now they go crazy over them.

I give my bettas night crawlers and they love them. I give them 1 every Sunday along with blood worms for my harlequin rasboras and neon tetras


Keep calm and drum on
