 I  started  my  own  tubifex  culture.Which  also  house  his  relatives  mosquito  larvae  and  a  load  of  other  Edit.
 
 1.Sand  substrate.
 2.Plastic  tray..
 3.1.5  cm  sand.
 3.3cm  water.
 4.A  leaf  half  burried  in  the  sand.
 5.1  or  2  folating  type  aquatic  plants.
 6.Algae  from  a  pond.
 7.sunlight  in  a  shaded  place.
 8.Tubufex  cunture.
 
 Leave  the  setup  for  a  day.
 
 OBSERVATION:
 1.Lot  of  thread  like  actively  wrigling  worms  on  the  upper  surface  of  the  leaf.
 2.Adult  worms,stout  red  ones  moving  about  on  the  substrate.
 3.Mosquito  larvae.{after  1  week}
 4.Air  bubbles  formed  by  algal    growth.
 5.Brown  cumps  of  dirt  settled  on  the  floor.
 
 After  1  week
 
 OBSERVATION:
 1.Leaf  is  completely  eaten  up.
 2.The  skeleton  of  the  leaf[the  veins  and  midrib]intact.
 3.Not  many  young  tubifex  seen.
 
 Place  a  new  leaf[half  deacying].Refill  evaporated  water.The  young  worms  will  regain  their  positions  on  the  leaf.
 
 YOUR  TUBIFEX  CULTURE  IS  READY.well  dunno  what  to  do  about  the  brown  deposits
   Sad

 Tubiflex  culture.  Wow  superb!!  It  would  cut  down  the  diseases  caused  by  unhygenic  worms  harnessed  from  the  sewers.
 
 Btw.  what  does  "Tubufex  cunture"  mean?  You've  mentioned  it  in  point  no.  8

 It's  a  great  news.  Cheap  source  of  live  food  without  worries    Clapping    Clapping  But  how  come  these  worms  do  not  require  flowing  water  ?  
 
 Is  it  possible  to  feed  tubiflex  worms  with  backer  yeast  ?  Had  anybody  tried  it  ?
 
 Regards

 I  have  made  arrangements  with  an  LFS  to  get  a  small  ammount  of  live  Tubifex  worms.  
   
 Currently  what  i  do  is  empty  the  worms  into  a  large  tray  -  with  very  little  of  the  water  from  the  LFS,  fill  the  container  with  a  jet  of  fresh  water  and  after  the  worms  have  regrouped  to  form  a  bunch  pick  them  up  and  feed  them
 
 I  have  heard  that  they  carry  a  lot  of  parasites,  what  is  the  best  way  they  can  be  cleaned  before  feeding  them  to  the  fishes.  I  am  very  keen  on  giveing  my  fishes  some  sort  of  life  food  and  dont  want  to  miss  this  opportunity.  Also  I  dont  have  the  time/patience/support  to  have  my  own  culture.

 Pradeep,
 
 Add  a  cap  full  of  Listerine  mouthwash  to  a  liter  of  water.
 Add  the  worms  you  want  to  feed  to  this,  swirl  around  for  a  minute,  drain  the  water  and  swirl  with  fresh  water  again.  Feed  fish.  You'll  love  their  breath.  Very Happy

 I  was  a  bit  serious,  people  have  used  Listerine  to  disinfect  tubifex  worms.  Listerine  has  a  stringent  bactericide.
 How  effective  it  is  something  one  never  knows.  I  used  to  do  it  when  I  was  breeding  killie  annuals,  but  as  with  any  tubifex  handling  it  was  a  pain,  and  I  switched  over  to  brine  shrimp  nauplii.

 Pradeep,  rinse  the  worms  in  a  net  under  running  water  for  a  couple  of  minutes  and  the  keep  them  for  a  couple  of  days  in  a  shallow  tub  of  water  before  feeding.  This  is  what  I  do.

 There  are  microworms  available  with  hobbyists  at  Bangalore...  easy  to  culture  and  maintain...  if  you  start  one  now,  you  get  unlimited  live  food  for  your  fries  in  another  3-4  days.    Till  then  go  with  Infusoria.    This  is  much  much  better  than  going  for  Tubifex  at  this  stage.
 
 Meanwhile,  you  could  get  start  the  tubifex  culture  and  go  for  it  when  your  fries  reach  1  month  stage.

 forget  to  mention,  that  I  use  to  buy  tubifex  from  an  LFS  at  Hanumantha  Nagar...  I  don't  know  how  far  is  this  place  from  where  you  live.    Check  it  with  the  nearby  LFS,  they  should  have.    Otherwise,  plan  for  a  trip  to  Hanumantha  nagar....    
 
 Secret:  Nag  stays  nearby  this  place
