Worms And Koi
Yeah you can feed Koi and pondfish some worms, and they’re not expensive. In fact, superworms made my Koi very happy for a whole indoor winter. Anyway, here’s the guy I get them from.
RE: Earthworms as food for fish – where to get them – how to feed
Thank you for linking our site.
We noticed a definite increase in brilliance of color – similar to that realized by bird and dog/cat breeders who feed a beta-carotene supplemented food. The protein content of our worms is higher than that of a “wild” worm as we feed a 16% protein food.
We have had worms in the 8 oz. cups in which we sell the smaller quantities in our basement unrefrigerated for 15 weeks and they are in excellent condition. We recommend that people not refrigerate their worms.
We ship by USPS Priority Mail and orders are received within 3 days of shipment. The care of the worms is relatively easy and has been addressed by a page on our site entitled “earthworm Care and Feeding”. It is linked from our Earthworm page.
Larger Koi can be fed either the European or Tropical Nightcrawlers. Small Koi can be fed Red Wigglers.
Hopefully this will answer your immediate questions, however if you have the time, e-mail me your phone number and the best time to reach you (including your time zone) and I’ll give you a call.

I have over ten of these Titanium Heaters in my fish room and at home. They're a paradigm shift in aquarium heating. They're titanium and 400W for under $30! Whaaaaaaaaat?
CyroPro by Hikari is safe and easy for Anchor Worms and Fish Lice.
Whatever heaters you use, back yourself up with a temperature controller, it'll turn on, and off your heaters. If your heater seizes "on" at least the thermostat will stop a tragedy.
LifeGuard by Tetra is a tablet version of a tame 'chloramine-t' or 'halamid' compound that's easy to get and good on bacterial infections, in baths.
For me, filtration-of-choice
Rubber sided, round, nettable tanks
1200 Watt heater, on a thermostat held securely above the waterline, works GREAT as a large tank heater. That's all I'll say because there's risk of electrocution and all that. But then, even in a bucket you could get killed. Sound like fun?
