Tubiflex Worms 紅蟲

Visited a LFS owner today and he warned the danger of feeding precious fishes with them.
Such worm is also called the sludge worm or sewage worm. They may contain harmful bacterials and will bring about serious diseases.

Tubiflex Worms

As fish loves them, some fish breeders may use drips method to clean them for 24hr. However how clean they are is hard to assess or quantify. Risk is always there.

  1. Besides harmful bacteria they also carry some parasites. Lost a couple of fish after I fed them thawed frozen tubifex. Luckily non of my pandas got sick.

  2. Sorry to hear that. I use to have processed freeze dried cube. May have a good chance is clean.
