Update
 After  adding  more  soggy  bread.  Today  the  culture  is  not  smelling  that  awful  but  it  reminded  of  baby  food  Farex.
 See  attached  photo
 
 These  worms  are  small  and  fat  !  So  obviously  not  micro.
 So  what  are  these  white  worms  ?
 Looks  like  my  rice  turned  alive  Smile                

 
 Looks  more  like  the  maggots  of  fruit  fly.
 You  get  the  same  when  some  how  the  fruit  flies  get  into  your  microworm  culture  and  lay  their  eggs.
 
 It  happend  to  me  twice  but  instead  of  the  babies  getting  their  food  the  bigger  bettas  got  their  food.

 I  finally  got  my  microworm  culture  (Thanks  Vipin)  and  started  growing  them
 
 Some  Questions
 Does  the  contents  look  like  this  ?
 
 
 Assumed  these  were  the  worms  on  the  side  of  the  dabba.  So  I  fed  the  fish.  They  went  crazy  chomping  away.  In  the  water  the  worms  looked  like  minute  white  thread  spots  sinking.  Correct  ?
 
 
 Does  water  collect  at  the  top  of  the  lid  ?  Or  is  my  areation  not  enough.  I'm  afraid  to  make  more  holes  lest  flies  get  in.  And  I  keep  this  in  a  dark  cool  area.
 
 
 When  should  I  begin  a  new  culture?  end  of  1  or  2  weeks  ?  The  current  culture  does  smell  but  its  not  that  kind  of  awful  rotted  smell
 
 Thanks

 That's  absolutely  mw.  You  should  feed  only  from  sides  with  the  help  of  a  ear  bud.  And  your  culture  is  ready  for  making  a  new  culture  culture.

 Tks  deepakg
 
 After  how  many  days  do  you  start  a  new  culture  ?
 
 Is  it  good  to  follow  this  pattern  by  starting  a  second  new  culture  when  the  first  one  is  at  its  peak  level  and  then  by  the  time  the  1st  culture  dies  off  I  will  have  my  second  ready....and  so  on.  So  the  question  is.  What  are  the  peak  level  days  ?
 
 Can  someone  let  me  know  what  trend  they  follow  ?
 
 Thanks

 its  always  better  to  have  2  cultures  running  at  the  same  time  because  if  one  of  it  crashed  or  anything  goes  wrong  then  u  have  a  spare  culture  with  u....u  can  make  more  holes  and  cover  them  with  a  piece  of  net  or  cotton....
 what  i  do  is  set  a  new  culture  approx  after  7  days....and  i  have  kept  4  such  small  containers
 
 what  medium  are  u  using  to  keep  the  culture  alive,  is  it  white  bread  or  wheat  flour??

 you  should  always  have  two  cultures  running.  Now...  You  should  fix  two  days  in  a  week  when  you  replace  them.  Like...  one  on  Sunday  and  another  on  Wednesday.  Usually  they  are  safe  for  a  week  if  you  are  using  common  white  bread  as  food.  Or  use  cornflour  for  a  more  stable  culture.  Also  its  always  better  to  harvest  them  or  they  will  suffocate  because  of  over  crowding.  Hope  that  answers  your  questions.  Smile
