    Default Black worm keepers/trays.

    Hi folks. I wanna try out the following:

    https://aquaticfoods.com/BlackwormAccessoriesM.html
    https://wattleydiscus.com/product/black-worms-tray/

    The problem is Aquatic Foods don't deliver outside of the US and Wattley Discus want $50 US for shipping alone!

    I was thinking of using a freight forwarding company to get these delivered. I guess my questions are, does anyone know of a better method to get these delivered and does anyone else want to try these out? If so, I can bulk order.

    Hit up Indir in the forum for 3d printing these. Thank me later.

    What do you want them for, to hold blackworms until they are fed to the fish?

    Just make one out of a plastic bucket and some 5 micron screen.

    We use to keep blackworms in a polystyrene esky and had a small internal power filter. The water drained out of the worm esky into a second esky with a few sponges in. Then a small water pump (power filter) pushed the filtered water back up to the worm esky.

    If you set them up in a large shallow container with flowing water and some gravel/ sand on the bottom, they can be fed on fish food and will breed. If you have several containers going you can harvest one while the other recovers. Then swap over and use the other culture.
