I'm not even sure about the lifespan of tubi, nor their reproductive behaviours.. I believe the challenge with tubis is twofold:

1. how to keep the "culture" long enough without smelling/dying off, which is what the OP of this thread has figured, and

2. how "safe" is the batch that you have from diseases/internal parasites..

even if I manage to keep them alive and wriggling after a month and they reproduce, i'm not even sure if it's safe to say that they are free from any diseases since rubbish in, rubbish out

2. how "safe" is the batch that you have from diseases/internal parasites..

- i would say its rather safe if u wash daily n u see that the worms dun suddenly half of them die think u can use it ba. atleast i did =) so far all ok.

the thing is, I usually have no problem when it comes to prolonging the lives of these little wrigglers.. even to the point that i sometimes don't even use water with ktp extract. they do smell..well, like worms, but without 'that' stink. my only fear is that they may carry diseases or be a host for one even though they look alive and clean! oh well, the inherent dangers of live food i guess

Is your tubi clean, meaning that you only got tubi and not other types of worms?

If not clean, then the ketapang might hasten the death of these worms, and of course once you get fouled water, the tubi dies as well.
