    Bom dia, Felipe, your translator works well.

    I grow Grindals for years now on lava ‘lapilli’, which is called ‘pic√≥n’ over here. Some 2 cm in a tupper, half cm of water, a few worms added and very little oat over it. I have four tuppers which are in sequence; when I need Grindal I fill the tupper with water, stirring a bit und sieve throug a double kitchen sieve. All eggs and worms are feeded, they find their way through both sieves.

    There are always still enough left in the tupper, so just add a little bit of oats, close it again and put the tupper in the rear. Will be used next earliest in four days.

    This method keeps smell very down; nearly no contamination, sometimes mould (too much oats) and sometimes Drosophila, which the fish eat too. Growing on earth or bread gave a horrible smell after a few days.

    I did have mites on micros years ago. Just replace a – clean – bit into a new tupper. Wash if necessary; mites should swim on surface… theoretically.

    And yes, most of free living nematodes live in water and soil. Panagrellus, Anguilula, whatsoever… !
