oh. I didn't see this sooner either. Being sick always sucks. I started teaching a class this week and Monday one kid was diagnosed with an ear infection and another with bronchitis. Sooooo...I'm fighting my own demons. But I've got to say at least I have energy enough to work, etc.

Get well soon!

I hope you're starting to feel better Cassie. Take care of yourself! My brother ended up in the hospital with pnuemonia last winter because he pushed himself too hard. Don't try to do too much, even though I know its tough to do nothing but rest.

I'm doing alright...I went to a class today to get some credit for clinicals and it was a bit much. I am totally exhusted and am going to take a nap so I hopefully can get back to where I was before!

Did you get your doctor's okay to do this? I mean if you are in college I understand the pressure, but then again, pneumonia is serious. What seems to help the most with it? Sleep? Soup? Welch's Grape Juice? (tons of good stuff in it).

You grow these in your tanks with your fish? Cool. How did you learn to do that?

They're grown in a culture using oatmeal, cornmeal, some people use instant potato mix. Then you just harvest the worms and feed them to your fish. =)

Would those be mealworms?

Or are these something exotic?

yeah, I got a starter culture for about $8 shipped on ebay...not too bad, so long as I can get it to bounce back. they took a hit while I was down, half of them got infested with little black flying bugs, but I separated them before so I wouldn't risk loosing them all! If I can get the culture up and going again, enough to feel all my fish and then some, I'll see about passing them along on here. They are great for small fish, my boraras maculatas LOVE them, and since they can't eat blackworms (too big) these grindals are perfect!
