 It  is  impossible  to  breed  them,  i  have  tried  many  times  without  any  luck,  better  you  feed  them  to  the  fishes  before  they  die.  Also  as  jabba  said  they  will  breed  in  nature.  Amazingly  i  sometimes  find  them  in  pots  used  for  emersed  aquarium  plants  kept  in  my  terrace.

 A  bloodworm  goes  through  the  process  of  turning  into  a  fly  (Midge)  then  the  fly  lays  eggs  to  continue  the  process  again
 
 deepakg  the  king  of  cultures  would  have  already  cracked  this  if  it  was  easy
 
 Thats  why  they  found  another  option  which  is  tubiflex
 
 Unless  you  want  to  try  this

 I  think  that  if  you  let  a  few  dozen  pupate  in  a  closed  room  they  will  lay  eggs  again.  The  midges  (unlike  mosquitoes)  dont  require  a  blood  meal  before  they  lay  eggs.  Infact  i  think  that  the  adults  dont  feed  at  all  in  the  lifecycle.  Key  may  be  to  confine  the  adults  where  we  want  them  to  lay  eggs  again.
 Been  wanting  to  try  this  myself,  but  looking  for  eggs  is  non  trivial.

 this  also  begs  the  question,  how  are  the  commercial  guys  doing  this  ?  Each  10  gm  dabba  has  at  least  10-30K  larve.  Sure  it  cannot  be  wild  caught  in  that  quantity.  I  am  sure  that  there  is  a  mass  production  technique,  may  not  be  suitable  for  hobbyists  though...
