Collecting Wild White Worms?

Recommended Posts

So I found some "White Worms" under some logs in my wood pile and I'm thinking they're very similar to the ones we keep to use for live foods. I was searching for small earthworms to chop up to feed my Corydoras sterbai and found a bunch of these 3/4-1.25 inch long white worms in amongst the moist soil. They look identical to white worms and I'm curious if these are in fact the same!?

I put about 2 dozen of the worms into a small plastic container and set it up like I would normally setup a white worm culture. I placed a small piece of bread in with them and it looked like a clump of eggs was laid under the bread. I just removed the bread and replaced it with some fish food. I haven't seen the worms feeding on the bread or fish food so I'm not sure if these will survive or not. I live in the mountains so access to any starter live food cultures is a problem.

Anyone have any insight on this?

I'll try to take some pictures of them.

So I found out they are the same species. I found a concentration of worms sandwiched between two pieces of plywood with grass clippings between. I picked out a bunch and setup a culture.
