Live blackworms in NYC? Live cultures?

I'm re-entering the hobby. Where are we getting live blackworms in NYC these days? Is anyone raising live cultures that is willing to spare a starter?

Much appreciated.

Hey Jellie, welcome back to the hobby Hopefully you still have the Fluval 7.9G tank you got from me 7-8 years ago haha j/k. If you want to stay local, I usually get them from Aqua Star on Henry street. You can call ahead, because he doesn't always have them. I usually buy a dollar or two and it lasts my dwarf puffers a month+.

For the record, shipment seems to come in on Thursdays, but sporadically.

Stopped by Aqua Star on Henry St today. He says his cat is no more but also that he switched his blackworm sources, and will always reliably have them in stock! They were very healthy worms, no leeches, no dead bodies. Beautiful.
