it's the only "worm powder" i can think of... 12% crude protein, 1% fat 6% fiber.. consists of: grain products, plant protein products, animal protein products, grain by products, calcium carbonate and dicalcium phosphate...

pinoyghost2 I bought a big bag of it at a fish auction. Don't know the make, no name on the bag, but I have fed it to my Tibee and CRS babies from birth and all are growing extremely well...didn't lose any of them. Great stuff.

I mix it with water from the tank, then squirt it in with a tiny syringe, not a lot at a time. I sometimes add gravidas to the mix and mix it well then squirt that in. Female berried shrimps like it too.

eco No babies in the main tank? The babies could not have been eaten by her or the snail! Oh! Never mind! Congrats

pinoyghost2 Yay....I was just looking in the tank right now about to empty out the breeder box and saw something move....got the magnifier out and would you believe it....a tiny and I mean tiny blue panda....here I was looking for black shrimps and forgot that some of the BKK are born blue and then change to black.

If there is one, there could be more, so I put in an airstone and small moss ball and some earthworm powder for the baby/s to eat.
