I slice up worms using a straight-edge razor blade in a dissecting pan with
a silicone-like material poured into the bottom. It's the kind of pan you
can buy from Wards or Carolina Biological supply. I have the advantage of
just taking one from the freshman biology lab... otherwise the
slicing&dicing would be messier. The darters certainly thank me for it!
