I've never seen a darter that won't eat blackworms...usually within a day of
captivity. One thing you might be overlooking...the darters (and you should
make an attempt to ID them, it's important to know!) might be sick. If
they're laying around acting listless, I'd bet they are. Generally, it's not
difficult to get darters to eat a wide variety of live or frozen foods.
