Doesn't take much. They do better cold it seems, and my house is pretty warm. People use wine fridges. I just bought a styrofoam cooler and rotate a couple ice packs. KISSWould love to see more white worm setups, thinking of doing that myself, also based on the expertise of Paul B.
I use tortillas instead. They certainly don't moulder as quickly as does bread, and the worms seem to like them, too. I sometimes soak them in yoghurt or selcon to up the nutritional content.I started skipping the bread after a week or so. I found the worms would dig in, meaning I'd throw them away when I tossed the moldy bread. Maybe wouldn't be a problem once the culture is big enough to eat it all. Is there any reason just yogurt and yeast would be bad? I just put a dollop of the yogurt directly on the mesh, and sprinkle some yeast over it. Worms seem to be doing well so far. Big gross snotty mess of them on the mesh when I check on them in the morning anyway.
I have the dish one. Few lines about it on my build thread. Easiest thing to use, fully recommend. It takes me 5 mins every few days. Daily harvest is big enough for my 2 mandarins.I did several types of redworms, black worms, daphnia, and vinegar eels for raising Apistogrammas years ago.
I have done some baby brine shrimp, but I found the set up a bit more labor intensive for the amount of brine shrimp I got from it. I saw a new little dish that looks fairly simple and have been thinking about getting one and trying again.
Can anyone give insight on the Brine Shrimp Hatchery from BRS?
