To the end of extremes and back

I just started digging a pit in my backyard so I could culture worms and other yummy treats for my black ruby barbs so they'll breed. Anyone else doing something crazy for their fish?

I went to the extreme of 11 cultures of 5 different live foods for mine. Grindal worms, fruit flies, white worms, vinegar eels and mealworms. I still have grindals and vinegar eels but mostly for feeding fry now, 3 vinegar eels and 3 grindals.

What kind of worms you gonna culture in there?

Earthies and other inverts. But I was forced to fill it in, cuz it was 6 feet deep.
BUT, I did get 2 buckets of sand for my aquariums.
I'm gonna start it again in a month though, with less depth.

Is it safe to use sand from underground? I am really interested beacause I live in Miami, Florida and I've dug a whole not so deep and easily found sand before. If its safe I would like to use it.

I bought a 450 gallon tank for a fish and drove 980 miles round trip to pick it up. 23 hour total trip, LA has some bad traffic.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.
