Sorry Tim, but Darren didn't write that email, I did. Kaycy.

First off, I have had no problems feeding live tubifex worms to any of my
fish and I have been doing it for over 10 years. I hear what is said out
there as well. As yet, I haven't tried any of the white worms or black
worms. I give the adults the frozen large brine once in a great while
because most of the nutrition is gone. I, myself, don't have my breeders
with other fish except for my Kribs. All other breeders are housed in their
own tanks without dithers either. Very boring I guess for them, but I get my
best results that way. As far as apisto's in with the altispinosas, you
could put them in with each other. The altispinosas aren't as aggressive as
some of the apistos can be. It all depends on your taste.
