Live Tubifex are live Tubifex in packs to be used as live fish food for coldwater fish and tropical aquarium fish. The Live Tubifex packs are a great live food for fish of all sizes and even the larvae of some amphibian species. They are also really good for feeding fussy eaters instead of dried or frozen food, as they will provoke an immediate feeding response. These worms have been farmed from clean sources and carefully cultivated to ensure they are safe to be used as fish food.
Tubifex worms are one of the classic live fish foods, alongside Brine shrimp, because both fishkeepers and fish love them. Live Tubifex worms are packed full of protein and contain lots of the key nutrients your fish need to grow and develop. However, if you are planning on using Tubifex worms as a staple feed, we recommend pairing them with nutritional dried food to guarantee complete vitamin coverage.
Tubifex are suitable for all coldwater and tropical fish, however, they are normally not served to marine fish. They are particularly suitable for tropical micro predators like Badis, which usually shun dry and dead foods. They are great for keeping weight on small, tricky tropical fish and are a great favourite of fish breeders.
Tubifex worms will arrive, via our delivery service, fresh and ready to be served. All you need to do is drain the water from the pack by using a fine net. Then simply dump them in your tank. If you don’t want to use all the worms at once. You can store the others in a cool and dark area, such as a fridge or a garage, where they should keep for a couple of days.
