I've been searching for a source for live Blackworms here in the UK at a reasonable price for some time now and ended up finding them on ebay while looking for something else.
The sellers ebay name is janef1234510. I've ordered some, so we'll see what turns up.

I'd like to hear how these work out for you. It seems that a lot of people in the USA are able to feed these to very young larvae and if it works id like to try it.

I have seen a killifish breeder in Scotland advertising cultures on eBay. Anyone had any success at this? I currently feed dried and blackworm sticks to axolotl which I can supply. New stock on way from the U.S.

I've seen them on a site called Blades Biological. They do a lot of stuff actually, I've used them before great service.

Blades biological are alarmingly expensive, though. Sciento do them as well, also rather expensive.

I've bought bloodworm from the Scottish killifish supplier on several occasions. I'm a bit suspicious of their claim that they're 'laboratory produced', but I've had no problems with them.

I've offered before to send out small amounts of blackworms in the UK, at postage cost only, for anyone interested in culturing them- I can still do this. I can't offer better value than the ebay listing at £1.50 though (if it's still available).
