Hi guys. I started my mealworm colony months ago and it is going great! I've got thousands of free feeders from it but my question is what is the best substrate to use ... Right now I use oats and omg it's such a pain in the butt to try and separate the little worms from the substrate!! I tried to sift them out but that didn't work so well and I've spent house leaning over the container with tweezers and scoops trying to get as many worms out as I can. I like to gather them all up once the reach a certain size and put them in the fridge so they don't gwo faster then my hatchlings an eat them. Any tips?

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
