This auction is for a large two ounce starter culture of walter worms. Widely cultured and used as a first/second food for fry of many
species of freshwater tropical fish. This is a healthy, sizable culture that is used to start mother cultures that are ready to feed in short order.

The walter worm is much smaller (about half the size ) than its cousin the micro worm and is a perfect first food for very small fry. Walter worms were first isolated and cultured by Helmut Walter of Germany in 2002, and were introduced to California aquarists when he visited there that same year. Walter worms stay alive in the tank for 24 hours or more and float in the water column longer than their larger cousins which gives your fry longer to find them.

These nematode worms thrive in a simple culture medium of oatmeal enriched with a small sprinkle of active baker's yeast - supplied with your starter. Room temperature up to about 85 F is acceptable, and within days of starting your cultures with our large starter portion the surface of your cultures will shimmer with worms. With minimal care there will ALWAYS be enough worms on hand for all the fry you can produce. The white areas on the sides of the culture below are many thousands of nematode worms.

You also get three of my 7ml feeding pipettes

These heavy duty - and most importantly wide barreled - six inch long pipettes are graduated in 1/2 ml increments up the 3ml stem and hold a total of 7ml. They have multiple uses in any fish room or breeding setup. They are handy for dispensing medications, transferring fry and eggs (just snip the tip wider with a pair of scissors), delivering small foods right to the fry that need them without spreading them all over the tank, and a whole host of other applications.

First Class mail shipping anywhere in the US/Puerto Rico is an affordable $3.45 - This item is not available outside the US/Puerto Rico.

Please do not email payment at close of auction before you hear from me.

We prefer Paypal for payment but US Postal Money Orders available only at your post office are also accepted. I'll contact you regarding payment at the close of the auction.

Thanks for your interest in my cultures!
