NANFA-L-- Red worm eggs?

I setup a couple of cultures of red worms. Of late, I notice
that fewer worms are seen when I open the container. However,
there are lots and lots of white specks (smaller than a grain
of sand, oval - to my eyes). Are these red-worm eggs? These
individual specks are all over the substrate, walls and cover
of the container (i.e. not laid in clumps).

If not, what should red worm eggs or egg-cases look like?

Do people feed juvenile red worms directly to fish or do you
harvest only the adult worms?
