What is nutritional value of grindal worms?
Why grindal worms are best live food for juvenile fishes or seedlings?
Well balanced diet of grindal worms as you see in the label of most commercial foods. Makes Grindal Worms become one of the most popular live feed in both hobbyist and aquarist.
Grindal worms are larger than the size of BBS, daphnia, microworms and vinegar eels which we use to feed our fies. Grindal worms are half the size of white worms, black worms and chopped earthworms.
During fires grow out stage
We can notice that when raising fries that reach a certain stage and just stop growing. In this stage fries quickly does not adapt itself to commercial dry foods; grindal worms are the best live foods for the juvenile fishes or seedlings because of the idle size range.

How to culture gindal worms?
About our starter culture
Forget about starting a new grindal worm culture for 6 months from the day you receive the starter. The starter culture which we are sending itself will be alive for almost 6 month to 1 year When it is properly maintained and harvested.
Any non transparent container, culture medium (potting soil or coco peat or scrubbing pad), water, good quality dog food, grindal starter culture.
Pour water in a coco peat block to maintain 18 - 23% of humidity and transfer it to the container.
Transfer some of grindal worms from the starter culture to the new culture medium in the container.
Feed the grindal worms with wet dog food by placing it on the surface of the culture medium.
Grindal worms need oxygen to breath so plan for it. Recommend to put few holes which diameter should not exceed 2mm on the closing lid.
Place the container in the shaded or dark place and avoid light to enter the container.
Are grindal worms allergic to light?
Yes, Grindal worms do not like themselves to be exposed to light
Grindal worms are shy character;-) lol... Their skin is very sensitive and when its exposed to light they will hide themselves by digging inside the culture medium.
How to maintain and harvest grindal worms?
Plan the feeding schedule and stick to it. Do not feed frequently or leave them starving.
18 – 23% of humidity is optimum for grindal worm culture medium. If the moisture is less they feel hard to dig the culture to reach the bottom in search of moisture and if moisture become excess then there will be a strong odor due to a lack of oxygen; they easily stick to the sticky bottom and they struggle to come to the surface.
Harvest or yield management
Place a glass or mesh on top of the food; so they stick to object when they come to feed. You can easily harvest grindal worms by just rinsing the object with water. If you want to increase the yield then slightly increase the amount of food. Do not feed until the food is completed. To decrease the yield harvest more, decrease the population and feed less food. Over populated grindal worm culture also crash as well.
Shashank Sinha Great bunch of people So I ordered the worms and they arrived dead. I was skeptical of post sale service of an unknown website but Man did they prove me wrong. They offered full refund or promised that they'll send a culture till it arrives live.
It appears that this was their first order for worms in winter and the regular packaging was not enough to keep the worms alive. They promptly made necessary changes in the next delivery and the worms were well and in good quantity to start the culture. I received the worms on Jan 2nd and already have five thriving cultures.
Arun from their team was a great help. Even after confirming live delivery and thanking them for their service, he gave me tips for healthy growth which I certainly never considered. He definitely knew what he knew. I am sure that he'll still answer me anytime if I have a question.
Based on my experience, I'll definitely rate them outstanding and will vouch for them to friends. Going for the Meal worms next..
Prabha Best sellers These guys are awesome and the packaging is good must buy guys
Suresh Puliyoorkurichi Received in Good Condition
Janardana Prabu Wonderful Service These people were very much helpful with prompt response when contacted for any query about my order. The container I received had a good number of worms along with 5 pieces of food to be used as a starter which was very thoughtful. In a week's time, the worms have doubled up in number and I'm able to regularly feed them to my fish. Overall it was a wonderful experience.
Karthik Chittoor Excellent Customer Service I have ordered Grindal Worms from the site. The response I got from them, every time I reached out to them when i had a doubt was exceptional. The site has everything a beginner requires to start off with a culture, and I'm yet to try their other products too. I recommend microworms.in as I don't think there can be anyone who can do it better than them. I personally want to thank Priyanka, Akita
Manohar Penta Bad experience I ordered the grindal worms on 1st October 2018, i received it approximately after 15 days and to my surprise the grindal worms culture i received was a complete disaster. As the website says that the culture will have approx 1000 to 5000 worms i couldnt find even 50 counting. Right now they are not propagating as fast as im expecting because of low culture volume.
Sohit Goyal Great food for all kind of fishes The one time investment for all kind of fishes. Prompt delivery and safe packing. Got it in a 250ml plastic container with 3/4 part of coco peat culture medium aprox 1500 worms during delivery. thanks
