Default worms in coconut fiber?

I think ive read somewhere on here ,though i cant for the life of me find it now, that nightcrawlers can live in the coconut fiber bedding instead of dirt. Is this right or would dirt be better? and also could I keep waxworms in there as well ? So it will be nightcrawlers and waxworms together in coconut fiber to make this clear.

I'm not sure what the best storage medium is for waxworms, but suppliers recommend keeping them on dry bedding. Nightcrawlers can live in the coco fiber, but be sure they stay very cool. It's not any better than keeping them in soil. Why are you doing this? Are you putting them in the tank with the animals, or just storing them?
