depends on wheather your T will eat them. my little T. blondi would eat one if I'd let it but the rest are afraid of them.

With the problems people have been having lately with nematodes I've read several people recommend against using earthworms as a feeder for captive T's on other boards.

also worms contain dirt in them which can contain mites and other parasites

I'd just like to caution that organic pesticides can still be bad. They may have a pleasant source and may be completely harmless to vertebrates, but they DO repel or kill inverts. This means that there may be some action on Ts. You would have to determine the threat on a case-by-case basis, I suspect.

Cheers,
Dave
