There are many important reasons to choose Live Blackworms
for your fish instead of frozen and machine prepared "fast" foods, or to
supplement other foods. Worms are a major part of the natural diet of
most tropical fish, but are you aware of these other reasons?...
Blackworms are 1 to 2 inches long, small enough for most tropical fish
to devour them whole. For feeding very small fish, they can be easily
chopped on a cutting board.
worms will not die and decay in your freshwater aquarium, but will live
as scavengers in the gravel, like earthworms in your garden, until the
fish eat them.
California Blackworms are Lumbriculus Variegatus, native to silt edges
of clean streams and lakes across most of North America. They are NOT
TUBIFEX, the sewage worms.
our California Blackworms are raised in controlled conditions without
fish, they are free of parasitic roundworms, tapeworms, flukes, Ich,
Hexamita, and other obligate fish diseases that Blackworms from other
sources (harvested from fish farms) might carry.
California Blackworm Co.
uses a high protein aquaculture feed to ensure that our Blackworms are
highly nutritious for your fish. They are an excellent main diet for
carnivorous fish, or to supplement dry foods, frozen foods and
vegetables for omnivorous and herbivorous fish.
fish devour Blackworms immediately with no “training”, since live worms
excite their natural hunting instincts, and quickly improve their color,
health and behavior. Blackworms help condition fish for breeding and can
increase egg production, hatching success, and fry survival.
Blackworms are ideal for acclimating wild-caught fish and for recovering
fish stressed by transport, aggression or disease. Even finicky marine
Butterfly fish love Blackworms! (But feed carefully, as Blackworms die
quickly in saltwater).
