live food culture

Is there anyone in Chicago that have live food culture that they can sell to me? Ideally a blackworm culture would be best but anything that you think a pea puffer can eat. I can pay cash or give you some aquarium equipment/rocks, substrate etc.

Thanks

The shortest distance between any two points is a straight line...in the opposite direction...

Can you just buy a portion of black worms to start a culture? Living Sea in Park Ridge carries them. It's a bit of a drive, but maybe that helps ya.

Where are you located in Chicago? Fish Planet in Deerfield carries live brine shrimp and blackwork portions. They also have some nice plants for sale.

Golden Aquarium usually has bloodworms and black worms for sell by the tablespoon. You've must ask them as they keep the culture in the work station in the back.
