Posting for a friend.

So I had a male and female green terror in a 30 gallon. I didn't buy them to breed, it was more of a good deal I came across.
They ended up laying eggs. All the eggs ended up covered in fungus. A day later I rehomed them.
The day I rehomed them I was cleaning the tank and found wigglers under a rock :-/. They're now free swimming. What do I need to do to keep them alive?

Get fry food like Hikari first bites. Or boil an egg, and put the crumble pinch pieces of the yellow egg yolk into the water, which will look like it is dirty.

congrats ehh - i like to soak some flakes with vita-chem - let them dry and crumble it up so it'll sink.

Boiled egg yolk crumbled and pellets or flakes crushed to dust is what I always use too. Good luck. Don't forget clean water and stick a sponge over your filter intake if they can get sucked in.

Go do a water change - the solution to pollution is dilution.
