HI ,I clean them and cut thin and all my fish go mad for them. They must be good for them being fresh better than frozen bloodworm .

You just have to be careful where you get your earthworms. If you get them from your yard make sure there hasn't been any fertilizer or pesticides wash into where you pick them up. And that's a big yes they will love tehm.

Fish just go NUTS for them! In books they recommend you leave them in a box/container with same damp grass/weeds whateva in their for a few days so they clean out their intestinal track and don't have dirt in them, which just ends up as waste in your tank.

After that in they go
