Why Microworms are best live food for newborn fries?

1Microworm measure 50 microns in diameter and 2 mm in length.
2Many fries are very picky eaters and they do not know stagnant food.
3Microworms stick to the bottom and do a wiggling dance underwater, so they are easier for fries to spot and even a slowest fry could gulp peacefully.
4The Uneaten microworms will survive submerged in water for approximately 24 hours
5They provide enough calories and more protein for fries to grow healthier.
6They do not create Swimbaldder disorder like baby brine shrimp.
7They are nearly less expensive to buy and maintain when compared to other live foods

How to culture Microworms?

Required MaterialsMicroworms can be cultured successfully with a starter culture, container, food and yeast.
Step 1Add a 3 cm layer of moist Oats or Bread in the container.
Step 2Sprinkle a pinch of yeast on the surface.
Step 3Gently apply starter culture of microworms on the surface of the culture medium.

How to Maintain and Harvest Microworms?

1Microworms will survive in a wide range of temperatures.Mix the culture once a week to extend the life.
2Just check the surface of the culture is moist and white.
3If you are not going to open and close the container on daily basis; then we recommend you to put holes on top of container. Otherwise not needed.
3If some contaminants found to be growing along with culture or if it smells so foul then please start a new culture.
4The worms start to crawl up the sides of the container in few days.
5The worms can be harvested by swiping worms off the sides of the container.

Comparison between Microworms VS Vinegar ells

Microworm culture (MW short form)Vinegar ells culture (VE short form)
Container, oats, yeast and starter are required to start MW cultureJar, apple cider vinegar, apple, water and starter are required to start a VE culture.
Bedding can be made of oats, wheat, maidha, potato and even bread.Culture can be maintained in apple cider vinegar or beer solutions
Monitoring and Maintenance should be done on daily or alternative days.Monitoring and Maintenance are not required. May be you can monitor evaporation on monthly basis.
Harvesting and feeding is simple. Just wipe the walls, rinse it in water and feed to fries.Harvesting and feeding is hard when comparing to MW. Filter the vinegar solution, rinse the ells and feeding to fries.
To harvest MW it will take around 3-4 days. (When they climb up the walls of the container)VE takes around 20 to 25 days to harvest. (When the culture propagates and thick population is detected)
Life span of individual culture 2 to 3 weeksLife span of individual culture 6 to 18 months
Microworms settle down in the fries tank. Best suited for the bottom feeders.Vinegar ells swim all over the tank, mostly near to the surface. Best suited for the surface feeders.
Microworms will survive 24 to 48 hours max. So when overfeeded and uneaten worm will die. That pollute the water.Vinegar ells will survive 7 to 10 days max. So overfeeding is not an issue here.

    Worth to buy
    Really nice product. Within 3 days i got the micro worms with starter culture. Worth to buy this. Thanks to microworms.in
  • Ganeshkumar Arumugam
    Awesome product
    Microworms were nicely packaged and delivered within 2 days from ordering. Oats works the best when you nicely mix it for about 10min with a spoon. I was not successful in my first two attempts as my cultures were taken over by fly maggots. But I was successful the third time. I kept starter culture in the fridge and it still works good. Thank you. All the best!

    I was successfull in breeding live bearing fies but breeding egg layer fishes was challenging to me. After knowing about this microworms i order here. Now i can save any sort off fries easily with this microworms. As a hobbiest I would recommend pls go for microworms.
  • Harish Kannan
    Smart and lazy breeders choice:) haha
    Hi, I am fish breeder from Chennnai. I use to collect nice(local name for Daphnia) from Kollathur that too early in the morning. Other wise i use to feed BBS(Babby Brine Shrimp). Microworms are easy maintain and harvest when compared to other live culture. Cheapest source and ready to feed on the go. My suggestion is to use Oats medium because Bread is not successfull all the time. Thanks, All the Best guys...
