Question Storing Night Crawlers

I own a baby Axie named Slafe, he's a very greedy little thing when it comes to feeding him. I want to start feeding him night crawlers but the only problem is i cant keep the worms in my fridge, any ideas other than keeping them in the fridge is great

I don't keep mine in the fridge. I just keep them in a cool area away from light.

You can set up a mini little farm for them. I use a plastic "fish" tank, from a dollar store. Those really small ones with a lid. Just be careful with any gaps in the lid because they can fit through small holes. I put them in this with some soil (mine come with soil, but if I need to top up I just grab some from the yard). I layer it with some shredded newspaper or egg carton and keep that and the soil moist. I usually mist it every day. Keep it in a cool place and they should be fine. They will eat the newspaper but you can give them other foods if you buy them in bulk. I usually get a month's worth at a time.
A styrofoam box also works well and keeps it cool :)
