Tubifex Worm Single Feed Bag (approx 200ml)

Regular price £1.99

Tax included.

All live foods are pre order only. Please place a seperate order for live foods and we will contact you for payment before we finalise any orders.

We are hoping that this will be a weekly order but due to carriage charges it may be fortnightly until we can build up our customer base as people see the benefits of this feeding program. Thank you.

Please note that prices may change as we build up our base, we will try to keep these as low as possible but these are based on similar that we have found online with shipping charges etc and have done our best to beat them. Obviously as we progress and order more we hope to smash existing online prices.

longer than bloodworm, this is a natural food for many freshwater fish

Tubifex worms live in the mud and silt at the bottom of lakes and rivers and, like earthworms, they have little bristles on their sides to provide traction for burrowing into the sediment. They keep their tails clear of the sediment to allow for absorbtion of oxygen from the water.

Tubifex have a reputation of being dirty and possibly carrying disease but provided they are well cleaned there is little evidence to suggest they cause problems in aquariums.  Tubifex worm supplied by our suppliers are cleaned and flushed under running water for several days before being sold.

Higher in fat content than bloodworm, they can be used to promote growth in fish but care should be taken to ensure they are only used as part of a balanced diet.

STORAGE: Tubifex worm are very susceptable to warm temperatures and need to be kept refrgerated if not used straight away.  Store them refrigerated in the water they are supplied in.

They have a tendency to clump together so best fed using a cone feeder so the fish can pull them through the holes.  If you don't have a cone feeder just feed them little and often.  For freshwater aquariums only - they will die very quickly if introduced into salt water.
