I've had my RBP's for about a year now and it seems as if they have hit a sudden growth spurt, they have also been extra vicious as of lately. I keep them on a diet of Salmon/flownder basically the cheapest fish I can get at the grocery store. Once in a while I will feed feeders for fun but at most once a month. I recently bought a shitload of night crawlers to fatten up my Flowerhorn but he won't take them. So I just chucked a few in my P tank as an experiment and they fuckin destroyed the night crawlers consistantly I can toss them in one after another and they just gobble them up. Anybody ever tried this before? Whats the nutritional value of these nasty buggers?

Has anyone tried breeding their own nightcrawlers? I cant remember where I heard it but i think alot of fishermen breed their own.

if im not mistakin night crawlers are A-sexual meaning they can reproduce without male female interactions...thus getting to the point that if you put them in a large bin starting with 100 worms you could end up with say 1000 in like 2 weeks or so,im vague on the reproduction rate but i can assure you thats how its done

as for nutritional values,yes they are good(messy aswell) but feed them to your p's too much and they can be bad

I don't think my compressus will go after night crawlers fast enough, either they will burry themselves in the gravel or suffocate.
