Vinegar Eels
(Turbatrix Aceti)

Vinegar Eels (Turbatrix Aceti)

Product Description:
Vinegar Eels are a type of Nematode that reach a maximum size of about 1/16''. Vinegar eels eat bacteria and fungi that grow in unpasteurized vinegar solutions. Vinegar eels live for about 10 months and give birth to as many as 45 young every 8 to 10 days.

The best thing about using Vinegar Eels as a live feeder is that they survive for many days in aquarium water. Most live fish food isn't aquatic and can die within hours of being introduced into the tank.

Vinegar eels are mainly used to feed fish fry (newborn fish), but are also useful to supplement the diet of adult aquarium fish. Vinegar Eels are one of the Easiest Live Feeders to Keep! They Need No Daily Care and Can Sit for Months.
    Use Vinegar Eels To Feed:
  • Gourami newly hatched to 1/4 inch
  • Killifish fry when newly hatched
  • Apistogramma fry at free swimming
  • Corydoras fry when newly hatched
  • Betta fry when newly hatched
  • Any fry too small to eat microworms
  • Any fry too small to eat baby brine shrimp
  • Adult aquarium fish of all types
