There is a live food thread in the 'Fish' forum.
There are more worms there than you can see. It'll take a few months for the population to bounce back. The tons of mites is a sign you're putting in too much food. Cut back. I'm dealing with minor mites issue now too. I pulled out my microscope to see and they aren't pretty.
I ordered a bag of diatomaceous earth and will see if this will kill off the mite population.
I use coconut fibers from the pet store as their bedding. It works pretty well and I feed them 'earth's best' organic multigrain baby food (sold through Target). The population grows pretty fast.
Give it another month, if nothing happens, PM me. I'll give you a hunk of grindals.
