How to Culture Microworms

How to Culture Microworms

Feb 27

This is what I am using to feed my betta fries, I have been breeding bettas for almost a year now.  I also use microworms to feed my guppies, I’ve got really beautiful tuxedos too :D .

The essential parts required:

  • Yeast to feed the microworms. Yeast may become self sustaining where cereal is used as the living medium for the microworms.
  • Vessel for the microworms to be kept in. Should have a lid to promote humidity but small amount of ventilation is required.
  • Medium for the microworms to live upon. This is generally moist cereal or potting mix.

With a cereal based culture the yeast will feed on the carbohydrates and in turn become food for the microworms. Dry yeast can supplement the microworms diet. In a soil based culture the yeast cannot sustain itself and will need to be added at regular intervals.

Commercial cultures from aquarium businesses are almost exclusively cereal based. A culture will remain productive for a number of weeks but will need to be freshly restarted after worm numbers have peaked.

To make a fresh microworm culture:

  • Select some cereal based food such as stale white bread or porridge. Baby cereal and wheat biscuit style cereals are excellent. Corn flakes seem less useful.
  • Boil or microwave this mixture, place it in a container. Allow it to cool then place some holes in the lid. Ideally the mixture could be autoclaved. This step reduces the number of mould spores that have the potential to take hold and destroy a microworm culture. A mature culture will out compete mould but freshly started cultures are vulnerable.
  • The consistency of the cereal should be moist but not wet. Although theseworms will stay alive for many hours on the bottom of the aquarium, a microwormculture can drown in only a few millimeters of water.
  • Collect as many worms as possible and smear them over the top of the medium. Microworms only live on the surface where they can readily breathe. Sprinkle with dried yeast.

Renewable Energy – Using Solar Energy for Your Homes

Renewable Energy – Using Solar Energy for Your Homes

Feb 18

With oil prices going up these days and no stopping them, electricity bill goes up too. Here in the Philippines, like other countries, people are looking for ways to reduce electricity consumption and save on money.

Solar energy has been getting a buzz here lately, and many have tried this way in getting free electricity. What is Solar Energy, well simply put, it is using the Sun’s heat and light, capturing them to provide power. With the help of technology, this has become easier.

By the use of Solar Panels, people can get free electricity from the sun’s light. At daytime and even at nightime. These solar panels are connected in such a way that they also charge batteries, and these charged batteries are what’s being used in the evening or when there is not much light coming from the sun (i.e. cloudy or during rainy seasons when clouds are gray and dark).

This is how our solar panel looks like, and this one above is a 5 watts solar panel that can light 2 or 3 LED bulbs or charge a cellphone at the same time.  Good noh?

Use solar energy for lights, radios, televisions, or if one has huge connection of solar panels, an entire house’s electricity will be supplied by these. No more monthly bills from electric companies, this is really a good way to save money.

Although solar panels are not cheap, but if you think in the long run, you will save more money when you are using these. You can buy just a small solar panel for your lights, then buy more when you have extra money, till you have a large connection of solar panels that will supply more electricity for your house.

If you’d like to know more about using solar energy for home use, please visit this site. Solar Energy in the Philippines for more detailed information.
