Live Glassworm (Phantom Midge Larvae) Fish Food
Live Glassworms (Phantom Midge Larvae) dewatered on a piece of paper. The water has been removed to make a net weight of the worms for cheaper postage. You have selected one of the best tropical fish foods available. You will find that your fish will be healthier and maintain their true colours. It's a perfect food for conditioning and breeding your fish. These worms are laboratory produced, certified free of parasites. Glassworms are almost entirely transparent, except for pairs of black kidney-shaped structures in the front and the back of the body. These dots are the air sacs. They use these air sacs to migrate up and down in lakes. Glassworms breathe through the end of their abdomen and have two small eyes at the front of their bodies. Glassworms are very tolerant to bad water conditions, including chlorine. Preferred food for top dwellers.
From our own experience, it's better to keep Glassworms wrapping in a damp paper (no need to place them in water). They're getting more oxygen when you keep them that way and stay alive longer. Just spray some water from time to time to avoid them drying out. You can keep them in a fridge or which is even better - outdoor in a polystyrene box with one or more ice/freezer packs, which should be changed daily. You do not have to feed your Glassworms. Uneaten worms will not foul your aquarium, but do feed according to your fish and aquarium size.
Weekly orders are suggested to ensure freshness. Please note the live Glassworms are sent out on Fridays as this is when we get a delivery from the supplier. Must be ordered by the end of Monday for dispatch on the following Friday. If you miss the deadline, the delivery will be made the next week Friday. Please also note if we have extra in stock we will post at the first possible opportunity, that means you can receive it sooner than the expected delivery time. We strongly recommend express delivery service, otherwise live delivery can't be guaranteed.
We combine postage to cover costs if you order more items from us. If there are any questions you have then please get in touch before you make a purchase. Thanks for looking!
