Vinegar eels, Turbatrix aceti, are small nematodes that are used in the production of vinegars. Their constant whip-like swimming motion makes them irresistible to fish fry. One of the biggest advantages of feeding vinegar eels to fry is that they can survive in water for a long time, allowing fry to feed on them opportunistically. In addition, since Vinegar eels are free swimming, it allows fry to feed on various water levels. Vinegar eels measure 50 microns in diameter and 2 mm in length. Due to their similar size, specimen feeding on Vinegar eels may benefit from an addition of Moina in their diet as a valuable source of roughage as well.
