black worms seem to be very popular food,some people seem to keep them in tank, though they are airbreahers, my tanks run75, is that too warm for them to live in tank?

Blackworms can live at 82 F or even warmer, if not overcrowded. They breathe through their skin, both under water and in air. If they're cold when you buy them, let them warm up in an aerated bucket. They can suffocate in warm stagnant water.

Did you ever get any? I got a 1/4lb bunch of them in with one of my last farm orders and I've been maintaining them in 2 tanks. They seem to be doing pretty well so far, so good in fact that I am considering keeping them in my elassoma tanks as an extra food source.

I'm just wondering if anyone out there try using Allen Repashy (Growth & Spawn) instead of live or frozen worms? I'm currently using it and am very satisfied with this product. I've used frozen bloodworms for conditioning but now switch to this.
