Non-parasitic unsegmented roundworms(Means it will not stick on to the fry s body, rather than it swims freely in water and become fries food.), discovered by Borellus in 1656.
They feeds on
Fungus and bacteria that grows on rotting vinegar and apple solution.

Comparison between Vinegar ells and Microworms
Microworm culture (MW short form)
Vinegar ells culture (VE short form)
Bedding can be made of oats, wheat, maidha, potato and even bread.

Jar, apple cider vinegar, apple, water and starter are required to start a VE culture.
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)

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.

Jar, Apple cider vinegar, Apple, Dechlorinated water or distilled water and a starter culture.

Sirajul Hasan Tiny creatures; even smaller than microworms Yea, they are bit smaller than MW. So after infusoria or paramesium, its good to feed this ells because of 2 reasons. 1) They are smaller than MW so fries can easily gulp it. 2) They have long life under water so overfeeding is not an issue. but MW is bit large and die of about 2 days. The only issue is it is not very easy to harvest like we do for MW.
Arun Jaiswal Best for betta fries While betta fries switch to swim vertical to horizontal it will feel hunger. During the time Microworm feeding is not the right choice hence they settle down in the bottom. Vinegar ells workout here by swimming all around water mainly near to the surface where betta fries also try to swim.
