NANFA-L-- Mealworms as fish food?

I got the regular Mealworms that are used as bait and
for feeding frogs, reptiles and birds, and have started
a culture-in-home. However, the small fish (livebearers, killies)
that I keep do not seem interested in these larvae.

Has anyone sucessfully used mealworms (Tenebrio molitor)
larvae as fish food?

I am also working on a colony of redworms.
But, I would really like to get a mealworm culture
going as well (it's relatively clean - don't have to
worry about mold, changing medium etc.)
