Feeding with tubiflex worms

Post by believe anot » Mon Aug 30, 2010 3:09 pm

Hi all,

do u do any cleaning process for the tubiflex worms before feeding to the fish? Or just feed it after you bought for LFS?

Thank you!

I can say most of the people clean them. Well it also depending on what fish you feed to.

Listerine? Sure?Kidding?

Somebody taught me to semi soak the worms into the water with net for abt 2 days. by doing so, the worms can clear the dirt or waste. Is it so?

For me, the tubi I bought from the LFS are taken from a pail of water with air stone. I did not wash them and straight they go to the tank. So far so good (cross fingers) :H
