Earthworms are fine as a treat, but not too often for fish as they are high in fat and protein. Wash them very well. And obviously only feed very small ones that the fish can easily handle. Or you can cut them up; some suggest freezing them first, then feeding the grated/chopped worms.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

Question Mosquito larve as food

Byron, I live in No. Central FL and have the ability to breed mosquito larve. Is this something that I might feed to my tank?

Yes. Just make sure the fish eat them, or you'll have a house of biting mosquitoes.
