Walter Worm Starter Culture For Sale

Walter Worms, Panagrellus Silusioides, were first isolated and cultured when Helmut Walter isolated them in Germany in 2002. They were introduced to California aquarists soon after. They are slightly smaller in comparison to microworms. They are 50 microns in diameter and 1.5 mm in length. Walter worms are irresistible to fish fry due to their constant restless movement underwater. They will survive submerged in water for approximately 24 hours. Microworm and Banana Worm are closely related species to Microworms in the phylum Nematoda. For free swimming nematodes, consider Vinegar eels.
