    I just started a microworm set up, it doing great for me. I don't have any fry but my guppies small or big seem to enjoy the worms, they are almost now work at all and give a good amount of them daily, I think I just feed my fish cloudy water (it was cloudy from the worms).

    Note:Most of my males didn't seem interested in the food that much but the females were pigging out on them. The male seem more interested in the females.

    I do the occassional live brine shrimp (pre-rinsed of course).
    I don't culture (I buy them by the bag already hatched at the lfs).

    Other than that the closest to live I feed is frozen!

    Oatmeal, it was the cheapest and I am on a budget so I got. oat meal working great for me, in 2 to 3 week I'm going to expand to four containers, about 4 or 5 week down the road I can most likely sell a few starters.

    If you do I wouldn't mind selling a starter to you, it would be the cost of the worms and for the shipping.

    I'm thinking about e-mailing the person I got my worms from and seeing if she has some eels that I can buy.

    Note:I mean vinegar eels.
