They reproduce very quickly, females birthing up to 40 babies  every one or two days for most of their life span.  They  live for several weeks,  but not usually more than a month. They grow quickly to maturity (about 3 days)  and reach a maximum size .45 – 2 mm or < 0.1 inch in just six days.     T hese nematodes  have been cultured by aquarium hobbyists since the 1930s. Microworms will survive in the aquarium for 12 Hours & can live up to  two (2) days  giving the fry a constant food source without over feeding. The Microworms have a  whitish color and  will move & wiggle  in the water which  triggers  the eating reflex of baby fish.  Nutritional information: (48% protein, 21% lipids, 7% glycogen,  1% organic acids, and 1% nucleic acids)  Microworms are not harmful to humans. CULTURING INFORMATION Culturing Microworms is very easy! At normal household temperatures (70-75 F  or  20-28 C)   you will find the culture of microworms at it’s peak productivity. Range: 68-85 F   MATERIAL NEEDED TO START A MICRWORM CULTURE: 1. Any Clean, Soap & Chemical free Container with a tight  fitting lid,  I  recommend using a  1 lb. or 2 lb. Deli  Style  Clear  Plastic Container with a tight Snap On Lid. (Note: the microworms will crawl up the inside of the container, the deeper the better. Clear, allows you to  observe the culture and how it is doing.)   Some people  use the inexpensive Glad or ZipLock containers. Have extra containers to start more future cultures. 2. A  starch based medium.  We use   Instant Mashed  Potato  Flakes  or Oatmeal.   Baby Cereal or  Corn Meal   can also be used. 3. Water that you would use for your Aquarium.  (No Chlorine or other Chemicals)  Water from the  aquarium is what I use. 4. Bakers Active Dry Yeast 5.  Microworm Starter Culture DIRECTIONS With a sharp, thin knife or razor blade put several  small slits in the top of the container lid (for  Aeration ). This will allow air in but not insects / fruit flies or gnats.   Or,  Use a  pin to poke holes in the lid.  You can also punch or cut a small hole in the center of the lid then cover it  with fine mesh like nylon stocking, coffee filter, paper towel,  napkin or cotton.   Use good tape or super glue to attach it.  Place about 1/2 to 3/4 inch layer of dry Potato Flakes or  Oatmeal  in the bottom of the container.  Oatmeal can be  cooked but is not necessary.  I've used it both ways. The Microworms live on the top of the mixture and  a deeper Medium serves no purpose. Moisten with water until saturated but not runny. Use only enough water to make a paste  constancy, Not Watery. Sprinkle a small pinch of yeast over the top. Add Microworm Starter Culture. Place lid on Container. Within 3 to 7 days the Microworms will start to  crawl up the side of the container. COLLECTING THE MICROWORMS Using something with a flat edge, scrape the Microworms off the  side of the container.   Be careful not to dip into the starter  culture on the bottom.  I use a 2 1/2 inch 4 sided mini  wooden stick,  normally used for crafting (Purchased at Walmart in Crafts area).  You can also use a toothpick, popsicle stick, plastic knife...  Some people use a small paint brush, Q-tip or finger. Whatever works best for you!  FEED THE FISH! A culture can produce Microworms well for 2 weeks  &  up to 6 weeks or longer. Start a new culture or more every 2 - 4 weeks using the method above. It is also good to have several cultures going at the same time just in case something happens to one.  I feed multiple tanks daily so  I start several new cultures every week to ensure I always have enough. Once a culture has quit producing, wash the container well. Rinse making  sure  there is no soap residue.  Re-use the container for the next culture. Using the method above, you can produce a  continuous supply of Microworms. WALTER WORMS Live Walter Worms are a great starter food for small fry's  healthy diet.   Excellent First Food for newborn fry such as  betta, guppy,  killifish, gourami, tetra, barb, danios,  platy, corydora,  “ Walter Worms ” is the common name for the group of microscopic  white nematodes used as a food for small fish fry.  Most smaller adult fish will also eat the Walter Worms, picking at them throughout the day.   Their Tiny size makes them more appropriate for very small  fry that are not able to eat  baby brine shrimp or Microworms. Walter Worms  stay in the water column longer then microworms, which tend to sink.  This makes Walter Worms best for middle of the tank feeding fry but can be consumed by all small fry.   Baby brine shrimp are often too large for  some newly hatched fish  fry to eat in the first couple weeks of life.  Walter Worms are around half the size of microworms.
Walter Worms are relatively new to the Aquarium Hobby. They were  first cultured by  Helmut Walter in 2002. German literature is classifying  Walter worms  as Panagrellus Silusiodes.  They grow quickly to maturity  and reach a maximum size of 0.04 inch in just six days.   On average Adults are >1/16 of an inch or less.  They live for about 35 days  and a female  Walter Worms can have 60 young a day starting at around  4 days old.  Walter Worms  can live at room temperatures, and optimum  reproduction rate is at about 68-85F degrees. Walter Worms will survive in the aquarium for 12 Hours & can live up to  two (2) days  giving the fry a constant food source without over feeding. The Walter Worms have a  whitish color and  will move & wiggle  in the water which  triggers  the eating reflex of baby fish.  Nutritional information: (48% protein, 21% lipids, 7% glycogen,  1% organic acids, and 1% nucleic acids)  Walter Worms are not harmful to humans. CULTURING INFORMATION SAME METHOD AS FOR MICROWORMS VINEGAR EELS Live  Vinegar Eels are a great starter food for small fry's  healthy diet.   Excellent food for newborn fry such as  betta, guppy,  killifish, gourami, tetra, barb, danios,  platy, corydora...  Vinegar Eel ” is the common name for this group of microscopic,  non-parasitic,  small Aquatic Nematodes  (Turbatrix Aceti) used as a food  for  small fish fry.   This means   that the Vinegar Eels can live in a water  environment like  an  Aquarium  for some time.   Most smaller  adult  fish will also eat the  Vinegar Eels , picking at them throughout  the day.   Unlike baby brine  shrimp,  vinegar Eels will last much  longer  in your  tank  until your fry  or  adult fish eat them.   Vinegar  eels  can  live in  an aquarium for days on end and they swim throughout  the  water column.   This means less  chance of these live food  fouling the water.   To   reproduce  they need to  live in apple cider  vinegar.   The female Vinegar Eel  gives  birth up to 45 young  every  8-10 days, and  live for an average of  10 months.  The adults reach  a size of a bout 1/16 inch or 1 - 2 mm in length, young are much smaller. Vinegar Eels need air exchange to survive and  they live and eat off of  fermenting apple in the vinegar culture.     Their tiny size makes them appropriate for small  fry that are  not able to eat  larger food.    The Vinegar Eel will go through six stages of development:  egg, four larval stages, and adult. This cycle  will occur completely  in the vinegar medium; it takes five weeks to  reach  the  adult stage. The total life span is about 10 months.  A healthy culture can reproduce at 20X it's population in just 8 days.  Vinegar Eels  are not harmful to humans. CULTURING INFORMATION Culturing  Vinegar Eels  is very easy!  Vinegar Eels do well at  temperatures from 60-90 degrees.  Room  temperatures  of 68-85  degrees  are ideal for optimum reproduction rates. MATERIAL NEEDED TO START A VINEGAR EEL CULTURE: 1. A Clean, Soap & Chemical free, clear, long neck bottle. (Wine bottles are a good choice, any clear bottle with a neck)  2. Raw Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar (With the 'Mother' is best, We use Braggs) 3. 1 Apple, washed well   4. Coffee Filter or Paper Towel & Rubber Band 5.  Vinegar Eel Starter Culture DIRECTIONS  Fill a long neck bottle 3/4 of the way to the top with a 50/50 solution of raw,  unfiltered apple cider vinegar and spring or bottled water. Add a few pieces  of sliced apple and pour in your vinegar eel culture.  Top off the bottle to just  at the bottom of the neck.  The neck of the bottle should have air in it.   Cover the top loosely with a coffee filter or paper towel securing it with  a rubber band.   This will allow air exchange for the vinegar Eels . Set in an out of the way place at room temperature.   A new culture will take  anywhere from 7-14 days for harvesting and can take up to a month, depending  temperature, size of the starter culture or size of the container.   You  will know when your  Vinegar Eel culture is doing well, you will see them  gathered around the  top edge of the Vinegar mixture in the bottle.  They  are very  tiny and hard to see.   I use a  10X Magnifying glass used for jewelry. COLLECTING THE VINEGAR EELS MATERIALS NEEDED Cotton Ball Fishing Line or Strong String Fresh Water Eye Dropper or Pipette There may be some slight evaporation of the solution, so you might need to  add water to the mix once in a while.  If your culture was not originally  at  the bottom of the neck,  pour a 50/50 solution of vinegar and water into the  bottle until it reaches the  bottom of the neck.  Don't fill the neck, you want to  have  it just at the  bottom of the neck.   Place a cotton ball with Fishing line or  strong string  attached down into the lower 1/3 into the neck of the bottle.   This will make getting   the cotton  out of the bottle much easier.  The bottom  of the cotton should just  touch  the culture.  Leave space between the cotton  and the top of the bottle.   Gently fill the neck of the bottle with water.  The water  will stay on the top,  the vinegar will stay below the cotton.  Vinegar Eels need  air.  Leave the bottle  set for a couple hours.  They will crawl through  the  cotton,  into the fresh water  and  in the top of the bottle neck to get oxygen.  Using an eye  dropper or Pipette, siphon  the  fresh water,  full of  vinegar eels out of the top  portion of the neck of the bottle.   FEED THE FISH! To collect more Vinegar Eels, simply add more fresh water to the bottle neck. Or: Remove the cotton and siphon just enough liquid out to return the  level to the bottom of the neck. A culture can produce Vinegar Eels well for 6 Months  &  up to a year or longer. Every few months or 6... add a few slices of apple.  Make sure to  keep the  culture topped of with water once in a while.  When doing  this,  adding vinegar  is not  necessary, only the water will evaporate.   Start a second culture or more using the method above. It is good to have several cultures going at the same time just in case something happens to one.   Using the method above, you can produce a  continuous supply of Vinegar Eels   SHIPPING PLEASE MAKE SURE THE SHIPPING  ADDRESS REGISTERED WITH EBAY IS CORRECT.
