I am going to try a worm. when it rains here the worms come out like crazy. I give it to him when i know he's hungry so he goes after it or it will just sink and this O is a lazy O...~:)

in my crash course on vermiculture, one question i raised is that, why worms usually come out of the ground whenever it rains. the expert said that worms are sensitive to acidic water wherein sometimes our rain is so acidic that it irritates the worm under the ground forcing them to come out to ease themselves. if that is so, then it is just logic to wash them before feeding to oscar.
