NightCrawlers Live Food, 1Pack
Make My Hobby now offers an alternative to the ever increasing high cost of standard commercial fish food. We grow our worms organically, without any exposure to chemicals. Makemyhobby makes them free of harmful contamination and ideal for all aquarium fish as a food supplement.
What better way could there be to improve the health of your breeder fish? Feed them the natural food that has exactly what they need for good nutrition and do so with our assurance of high quality, organically grown worms. We offer these suggestions for feeding the worms to the fish in two ways.
1. Feed the worms as they are.
Larger fish like Pond Koi, Oscars, adult angelfish, and the more aggressive fish like the African Cichlids eagerly take live worms when offered. Feed only what the fish will consume in a few minutes time. Any food, including worms, will eventually foul the water if left Uneaten.
2. Feed the worms dried and crushed
Feed the worms dried and crushed to whatever size you need for the fish you're feeding. In order to dry the worms, you need two old window screens, or make two simple wooden frames and cover them with screen.
- Place the worms in a single layer on one screen, then cover them with the other screen and clamp the two sides together.
- You can sun dry these in the summer in a day or so. If you have a garage or workshop you can dry them all year in an out of the way location.
- Once they have dehydrated, remove the dried worms and crush to the desired size.
- Place them in old fish food containers.
If you're industrious, you can dry a large amount in the summer and place the excess in the freezer to retain freshness longer. Since there are no preservatives or chemicals, these worms will be great for all fish, all year round.
Nothing could be easier than drying and storing worms as a source of protein and vitamins for your fish. I have more guppies than I can count, and they are all thriving on this dried worm diet. Try it for yourself.
By adding the worms to your regular feedings, you should see an improvement within 30 days. Larger, more robust spawns and offspring, better color, and larger sized adults are all part of the benefit of improved diet. Even catfish and other bottom feeders scramble when the dried worms fall into the tank. We are pleased to offer this suggestion as one of the many ways you can utilize the organically grown worms we sell.
Another tip: if you plan to grow your own worms to feed your fish, make sure not to put any raw meat in your compost heap to feed them with. Raw meat or any vegetables with chemicals on them can pass on nasty things to your worms like parasites and pesticides. This will make the worms toxic for your fish!makemyhobby
