    Is anyone here feeding live blackworms to their marine fish?

    And if so, where are you getting your blackworms?

    I feed a big scoopful every day (when I have them). I order them in large quantities from a local supplier and keep them in a Cool Whip bowl in the fridge. I am ordering some blackworm keepers from https://www.aquaticfoods.com/BlackwormKeepersM.html because it is hard to get them clean every day. The fish LOVE them.

    You can get them from a local fish store in Crystal., I don't like the owners husbandry practices but he does sell live black worms in bulk.

    Oh dang. Okay, thanks. Not surprised really. Kind of fine with that. That place was a Mandarin killing factory. Made me angry Everytime.
