Hi Yvan,Unless you can purchase from a wholesaler ( around these parts you need a retailers license) I suggest you try to work together with your favorite aquarium pet shop.I get all of my live food (Brine shrimp, blackworms, tubifex etc.) through my local aquarium pet store. I'm not talking about paying retail price!! Since I sell/trade most of my fry with this pet store, over the years I worked out an arrangement where everyone is happy.  I pay him cost plus a small markup (for his trouble).  I can buy as much as I want. It sure beats paying 3 x cost!There're mail order catalogues where you can buy direct, but in the summer time I've had bad experience with black worms.. the heat kills them quickly!!  best done in the cool weather.Good lucksal
