Been using microworms for an early food for all the fry in the fishroom. From what I've read, may not be the most nutritious. Has anyone "gut loaded" microworms? If so what did you use? Results?

Appreciate any insight

My view was switch from micro worms to bbs asap. However, I am not positive bbs is best food. Although, bbs seems like a miracle food for fry that can take it.
Even a micro worm has some protein and nucleic acids.

It seems part of why worms are a good source is motility, drawing fish to eat the worm.

I suggest calling brine shrimp direct and asking what scientific information they have on gut loading worms.
Like a complete unknown
