Eating White Worms

Postby AquaGirl » Sun Apr 03, 2011 4:43 pm

Someone told me that white worms were way too large for CPD to eat.

I have many cultures of white worms and feed them to my other fish. The other night I took two white worms and dropped them into the CPD tank. To my surprise they ate them in less than a second and were searching the tank for more. Their mouths are not as small as I thought they were. :lol:

I am now adding white worms to their tank a few times a week and they go crazy for them. I am wondering what other type of live food they will eat. I already know that they will eat Micro worms and BBS.

Is anyone feeding things like wingless fruit flies? Any other type of live food?

My CPDs and goldrings both go crazy for daphnia. It's fun to watch them hunting through the plants for those little buggers! I think things that move around are especially entertaining for them.

I believe that feeding fish live food is essential for their well being, IMHO. They would be eating live food in the wild, not flake. I do realize that not everyone has live food available or wants to feed live food.

In the summer I put buckets of water with dead leaves outside. I harvest tons of mosquito larvae for my fish. Only problem is that you have to be diligent about collecting every day or risk making the neighbors mad because you are hatching mosquito's. :)

I agree with you, they are entertaining to watch when they hunt down live food. :) They hunt down every one and never seem to miss any.

I have one friend that goes to stagnant water and harvests daphnia and glass worms. He will often find stagnant water and seed it with daphnia for collection. He is know all over our state as "the bug collector." :lol: He makes a fortune by selling the live food to club members.
