Thanks, any other books that are any good?You're very welcome. The internet is a wealth of information, but if you want a one stop guide to peruse options you may want to look into a book like 'Culturing Live Foods' by Michael R. Hellweg. It's pretty comprehensive and has a wealth of ideas, although quantity-wise, it's breeders he's farming for rather than enthusiasts with a few fish.
I'm no expert, but it might be the age of the microworms in your culture. It's relatively young microworms that crawl up the sides. If your cultures are several weeks old, they might be less vigorous, even if they're prolific.maggie thecat i don't want to hijack this thread but i have a question about microworms,
I have had a culture going for a few months now, i created 2 more containers of them recently but even though i can see millions of worms shimmering in the surface of all 4 cultures they aren't crawling up the sides like they used to, i feed them yeast once a week, a few hrs after this i might get a finger full of worms to feed my fish but no more,
Do you know what might be wrong?

How so? Microworms are generally kept at room temperature ie 68- 77 ish . They will climb towards light, or so I've read. Maybe it's culture dependent, but my microworms have never been great climbers. Which is okay. There's plenty of them to feed, and that's my primary interest.Has to do with temps!
