    You can get them anywhere that sells fishing bait (cause that's what they are ). Certain gas stations or Wal-Mart usually have them in a fridge somewhere.

    Awesome! Alright looks like it's time to start making room on the closet shelf for some worms! Any idea where to get a starter culture of red wigglers?

    It'll take them a month or two to get established, but after that they multiply fairly steadily. They're not prolific or anything, but if you're only feeding one tank, it should be more than enough.

    Alright, I could always leave it under my bed or in the closet. (still in high school) How fast do you think the worms could build a good population in a 3'X2' area?

    Bigger would be better. I had mine in a 3' x 2' plastic container, but you could go a bit smaller if space is an issue.

    Would it be okay to keep these guys in a smaller container? I'm trying to figure out a way to get more live food to my fish, like the angels...

    Also can this be done with a smaller container?

    Nope, no smell to it whatsoever. They're extremely easy to maintain, just toss some old veggies or whatever in for them every few days and keep the dirt slightly damp.

    Hey there, just wondering if the earthworm culture you were talking about has any sort of smell to it. I was considering doing a red wiggler culture for my 75G, but don't think it can handle the temperatures here during the winter...any help is appreciated!
