How to make Salt Water to change the water in Bloodworms & Sandworms:
What you will need:
Hydrometer (Specific Gravity Meter), Instant Ocean Salt (Synthetic Sea Salt)
You can purchase the hydrometer and Ocean Salt at a pet store.
Hydrometer should read between 1.024 - 1.025 (specific gravity)
After you have added your salt you can place your water and worms in the refrigerator.
Temp 36-38 degrees. Keep seaworms in a open plastic container (12" x 10" x 3")
Fish fallet plastic trays work great!
If you use a cover leave an air space a little for oxygen.
Use about 1 cup or so of salt water,
depending on how many seaworms you purchased.
Seaworms should be half in the salt water and half out of the salt water.
Always test your salt water on just a few worms and wait awhile and
mixing the water a few hours or even a day ahead of time is best.
Change your water in your worms once or twice a day..
You can also feed the seaworms every day (2 to 3 drops per gallon of salt water) with:
Kent Marine Micro*Vert Invertebrate Food for Fine Filter Feeders (kentmarine.com)
Feed worms every other day.
Bloodworms and Sandworms will live for 2 weeks in salt water.
You can also leave the seaworms in the no print newspaper and turn once a day.
