Thanx, Ray---this was also very helpful!

I've been keeping pygmies for about 2 years, and I love them so much. I
have them in a 2.5 gal on my desk, and they are good company when I am
painting or doing computer stuff. I wanted to expand into something a
little bigger and easier to see with my middle-aged eyesight---LOL.
Sounds like I'll probably stick with the blue spots, as they are the
gentlest, smallest, and most like the pygmies in looks. This was my
original idea anyway, until I became seduced by the beauty of the orange
spots and (especially) the pumpkinseeds! Maybe someday I will be able
to live in a house instead of a dinky little apt., and have that
fishroom and 200 gallon tank! Until then, I will try hard to resist
temptation :^)

I'd like to set up an indoor storage bin to breed earthworms in. Has
anyone done this? It has to be set up so it doesn't smell.
