What to do about live black worms that dont get eaten?
 
Just like the title says....We just got an African Dwarf Frog and fed it some live blackworms, there were a few that didnt get eaten, will this be a problem since we cant find them? Or will the be found and eaten by the ADF or other fish?

How big is the tank and what fish do you have in it? Bigger question is your tank heavily planted or have a lot of nooks that fish can't get to? I would say just leave them and it should be fine but you want to make sure you can monitor them because if they aren't eaten by the time they start to turn white they can foul your tank. Try to cut back on them if you see your ADFs or fish aren't always finishing them.

Its the tank in my sig. along with the ADF. Not planted. Not too many crevices or anything like that that the fish couldnt get to I dont think. I figured I would leave it be and just keep an eye out for white worms. Thanks!
