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 Culturing Walter Worms is very easy! At normal household temperatures (70-75 F  or  20-28 C)   you will find the culture of Walter Worms at it’s peak productivity. Range: 68-85 F   MATERIAL NEEDED TO START A WALTER WORM 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 Walter Worms 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.  Walter Worms 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 Walter Worms 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 Walter Worm Starter Culture. Place lid on Container. Within 3 to 7 days the Walter Worms will start to  crawl up the side of the container. COLLECTING THE WALTER WORMS Using something with a flat edge, scrape the Walter Worms 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 Walter Worms 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 Walter Worms.   SHIPPING PLEASE MAKE SURE THE SHIPPING  ADDRESS REGISTERED WITH EBAY IS CORRECT.
