Ok, recently i got a new supply to tubi from a neighbourhood lfs. I found that most of the tubi inside were still young, meaning baby tubi or smth. The water did not foul for a 36 hrs. YES. 36 hrs. but i felt it was time to change the water so i changed it anyway.

Somemore i used regular tap water. 1/2 inch thick of water. cool

For that amount of worms, the tray would stink up the whole room and more than 50% of the worms would be dead and rotting by the second day even with a couple of water changes.

I keep the worms in room temperature.

Hope this helps

Default Tubifex worms?

I think there's alot of other foods which we can also feed our fishes be it live or dry foods. Tubifex worms once if we did not wash properly or not fresh there's lots of chances our fishes turn up sick.

In my opinion, i still avoid feeding them tubifex worms. If want live foods can choose adult brine shrimps or baby brine shrimps, for dry food i feed them NLS grow or flakes.. Quite a lot of food to choose so why trouble to risk your fishes to sickness?

What's the point in making your fish looks fat? I prefer a hot and sexy babe than a big fat shark.. Hahahahaa

But honestly must wash them "tubifex worms" properly and i don't like the smell when they die and i have to keep changing water or wash them. Try frozen blood worms not a bad idea? I bet also can makes them fatter.
