Salt maybe can kill parasite but not bacteria.

Well have problem or not will depend on your worm source, the sensitiveness of your fish you feed to. So the same result does not apply to everyone.

Hi all,

really appreciate ur advice. A big THANK YOU to all!

I bought a small bottle of Colgate Plax to try later.

Yesterday I bought a small pack of tubi worms. I rinsed several times. The water is quite clear with some dirt. So I left it there for abt 30mins or so. When I return, the water turned brown/dark red. Then I rinse again and see a lot of dead worms. Wat is wrong with my process?

If fact I am not good at handling tubi worms. In the past, I always feed frozen blood worms. This time round, jus like wish to get it right so that I can feed my gf with live tubi worms. :Enjoy

Colgate Plax? Could be different chemistry from listerine.

You forgot to provide oxygen.
Yeah, I also think so. But after washing, why left it for 30min? Straightaway feed lah.
