Where to find Live Blackworms around Athens?

Can somebody please recommend a local shop where I can purchase live blackworms. I am willing to travel Atlanta, Macon, Gainesville or Augusta. Just need a couple ounces a month.

The LFS I usually get them from sent me home last night with a bag of stinky polluted water full of badly decayed dead worms. Hell even the Planaria in the bag was DOA. Too bad, now they lost all of my business. It's not about keeping worms healthy, its whether or not you send them home with a customer that determines how good your customer service is. This was not the first time, but it was the last time.

Have an open mind, but not so open that your brains fall out.

Think outside the glass box.

Also I am willing to split an order fresh from the farm with anybody from Aquatic Foods.

Umm I see a RAOK popped up today for some blackworms. As far as knowing a place to get them, sadly I do not. Hopefully someone can chime in.

Sounds like they were overfeeding them and forgot to change the water.
