Live Premium Quality Cultured Black Worms



Our Black Worms are cultured and raised in controlled conditions without fish (unlike some other farms). Eastern Aquatics uses a high protein feed superior to most other feeds to ensure that our black worms are highly nutritious for your fish.  Live delivery guaranteed

In addition to tropical fish, Black Worms are a nutritious and fulfilling food for various other aquatic life forms, including newts, aquatic salamanders, baby turtles and tadpoles.

There are many important reasons to choose Live Blackworms for your fish instead of frozen and machine prepared foods.  Live foods are the truly perfect nutritional source for your tropical fish.

  • Our Live Blackworms are small enough for all tropical fish to devour them

  • The uneaten worms will not die and decay in your aquarium gravel bed and filtration system.

  • Our Live Blackworms are raised in controlled conditions with no fish (unlike some other farms) and are free of parasites and bacteria.

  • We use a high protein manufactured feed superior to most other feeds along with an advanced reproduction environment.

  • Your blackworms may arrive with some harmless plant leeches. They will stick to the storage container so when you empty out your storage container, the leeches can easily be removed.

These Live Blackworms are teeming with nutrition. Your tropical fish will quickly show the health that nature intended for them when you include live foods in their diet.
Live Blackworms provide the most excellent source of protein, and are extremely useful as a conditioning food for breeding preparation.

You have selected one of the best tropical fish foods available. You will find that your fish will be healthier and maintain their true colors. Our Blackworms are the perfect food for conditioning new tropical fish and breeding tropicals.

Upon the arrival of your Blackworms thoroughly rinse them with AGED PRE CHILLED WATER (40-50 degrees) until their run off water is clear and clean. When placing them in your live Blackworm keeper or other container make sure that your worms are no thicker then 1/8 inch. If they are thicker they may suffocate or try to escape from their container. Keep no more then 1/2 inch of water above them, and do not cover their container they need to be able to breath.

Keep your Blackworms in the refrigerator. They need to be kept between 40-55 degrees. Do not keep them in an aquarium, outside boxes, basements etc.

To keep your worms fresh they should be rinsed at least once a day. Use only AGED PRE CHILLED WATER when rinsing. Do not use aquarium water, or room temperature water. Only cold 40-50 degree water.

 You do not have to feed your worms, they will live off their own body weight. However the longer they are kept they will lose weight. Weekly orders are suggested to insure freshness. Uneaten worms will not foul your aquarium, but do feed according to your fish and aquarium size.

    I’ve been a repeat customer of Eastern Aquatics’ blackworms for about 2 years. Not only is the quality, heath and viability of the worms excellent, the customer service, ethics and communication of the owner is beyond excellent. I absolutely highly recommend this business; the service, worms and owner are the best. I wouldn’t be a repeat customer all this time if this website and business wasn’t. It is.

    I’ve placed several orders never with any issues, till my most recent one last week. My order was delayed 24hrs due to a storm. I tried to pick them up at my local office but was denied. I immediately contacted EA to let them know what UPS said and was assured if there was any issues my order would be taken care of.. as expected the worms arrived very much dead and hot. I sent photos and contacted EA immediately upon receiving the DOA. I’ve always been super happy with quality of the worms and great customer service but I was extremely happy when I got a call 30mins later asking if I wanted a refund or replacement.. I got the replacement order the next day, again with the previous excellent quality worms im accustomed to getting. The entire process was super easy and as always with top notch customer service! My fish are fat and happy!!👏🏼

    These blackworms are top notch, always healthy. I can keep them for up to 9 weeks in the frig if I just rinse them 1-2X/day. My Discus go absolutely crazy for them, and show their appreciation by begging and staying bright, beautiful and healthy.

    Craig and his blackworms are fantastic. Firstly- the worms are amazing quality. They come fast and are healthy. I’ve purchased several times as an Axolotl breeder and they’ve been an amazing and easy food source especially for hatchlings. They are well packaged and keep for a long time in either the fridge or a tank. Secondly- Craig is awesome to work with. He’s responsive and wants to make sure his customers are happy. I will continue to use Eastern Aquatics and I send my customers to him as well for high quality black worms.

    This is the best source of quality, healthy, feeder black worms you’ll find. Quality, shipping, communication and customer service are all excellent. Eastern Aquatics stands by its products. I’ve used them for years and would never look anywhere else.

    Everything perfect. Healthy, big worms. I will definitely buy again.

  26. wolfhillpaints (verified owner)

    Fast shipping, by far the best quality blackworms I’ve gotten. Me, my fish and baby axolotls are all very happy! I will be ordering again! 🪱

  27. Debbie Bordelon (verified owner)

    I’m a breeder and I attempted blackworms from other places in the past. They were soup by the time I got them and were disgusting. No one can beat Craig! His blackworms are always healthy and they have lasted well over 6 weeks in my fridge with daily cold water changes. I think Craig loves his worms as much as I love my axolotls.

  28. Debbie Bordelon (verified owner)

    Highest quality black worms! Shipped quickly.

  29. Mike (verified owner)

    Great worms! Arrived cold and sealed. Some leeches but not as many as others! Great service!

  30. Stephanie (verified owner)

    Excellent customer service and healthy black worms. My crimson fire and crown tail bettas just hatched today. Very pleased!

  31. Jaime Fiore

    I purchase blackworms to feed my rescued axolotls that were struggling to eat. The worms arrived healthy and packaged perfectly! My axolotls are gobbling them up!

  32. George (verified owner)

    Hi, in regards to eastern Aquatics I have purchased black worms from them three times now, and I could not be happier the health of the worms, the look of them is great and the shipping was fantastic. Could not be a happier customer I highly recommend them.

  33. gary.marsat (verified owner)

    Great quality, We use these worms for a “commercial-size” system with ~ 100 knife fish. We have dealt with Eastern aquatics for ~10 years and we always had great service and quality!

  34. Kyle Wilebski (verified owner)

    First time buyer and I ordered a pound right off the bat. Craig answered my questions to make sure I made the most out of a large order. They arrived healthy and ready for their valiant sacrifice. Oh, and the discus loved them too. Will buy again.

  35. Tina (verified owner)

    Because of the next day shipping it was a bit spendy, but you get what you pay for & I’d buy another pound if my babies were still tiny, but the good quality of these black worms lasted a few months & got me to the next stage of red wiggles. I saved money by buying in bulk instead of buying by the ounce at my local aquatic store.

  36. Amber (verified owner)

    I order every few months for my axolotl, he looks AMAZING while eating these, his gills get huge and fluffy!

  37. Sara D (verified owner)

    Customer service is great, the seller really makes sure your product arrives and everything is shipped well. The worms came cold, so I had to wait for them to warm up and once they were, they were all alive. Fed them all straight to my tanks and will definitely be buying more as the price is great for the quantity and quality compared to frozen blood worms that stink up the tank if your fish don’t eat them, hence why I was searching for a good seller of blackworms because those stay alive while your fish pick them off as they want, and Eastern Aquatics most certainly has the best prices around. 100% recommend this store.

  38. dewey altman (verified owner)

    Super high quality healthy black worms, will keep a long time with little die off as long as you keep there water clean. My super picky copper band butterfly fish tears these up.

  39. Pirate Axolotls (verified owner)

    Our axolotls thrive on these black-worms! We always receive the very best quality worms for our hungry babies!
