Microworms are the perfect live food for your fish larvae, if they are still too tiny to eat newly hatched Artemia nauplii. The culture of Panagrellus redivivus is very easy to care for and maintain and can be kept or propagated at home without any problems. This way you always have a running source of food for your offspring. But it's not just fish larvae that enjoy the microworms. Small fish species, such as sparkling tetras or Corydoras habrosus and shrimps, also like the little worms.

We will provide you with a 125ml cup with a starting culture.

This small but fine starter culture is embedded in a mixture of oat flakes and powdered food. When you get home, you can expand this culture yourself by pouring it into a larger, preferably tall, plastic container with a lid. You can create more substrate for your starting culture with a little water and oatmeal. If you now put the starting culture into the new container and only put the lid on lightly, after 3 to 4 days you will see a growth in the worm population crawling up the edges of the container.

The worms can be easily removed from the edges of the container with a cotton swab or a toothpick. You can then put them in a glass filled with a little water. From there you can raise the worms with a pipette. And then feed it to your fry.

You can always spice up your breeding batch by dividing it or adding new swollen oat flakes with some powdered food to the existing breeding batch after a while. This keeps your breeding approach fresh and active.
