Perhaps you can e-mail these people and get "care & feeding" instructions on it from
them. In this link they say directions supplied/w cultures. I have bought from them
and was OK with what I got for my money and the Tubiflex worms are next on my list to get from them. It should be at least less likely to have pest or diseases with it that you don't want than "some guy on e-bay" might have in his.
Likely there are those, as you said, who will scoff at me for this but I intend to release them in my tank at night when some should be able to hide well enough to start a colony of them in the tank. That is what I did with my first order...scuds...and now
they are established. The species of them which I got get not larger than 5/16 inch so
they don't bother the shrimp. Larger breeds will bother the shrimp.

put it in some water and place in the fridge? Im assuming they can be kept the same way as blackworms. Also are you sure that what you have are tubifex worms and not blackworms, all the fish stores near me only sell live blackworms.
Yes they're tubifex, they also sell black worms at this LFS. According to them I should keep them in the fridge and change the water once a day. Seems to be working so far. Got them Sunday and they're still alive.
