During this tubifex only captured from the wild, which in rainy period would be hard to find, cause of the mud where they lives were abundant river water erosion.So there needs to be solution for tubifex availability throughtout the year with the way cultivate them.
So what were the need to be prepared to cultivate, prepare your notesFirst. preparation mud media
The best medium for the cultivation tubifex sludge obtained from the base mud catfish pond. Then mixed with bran and poultry manure. Take that mixture for media cultivation tubifex 5-10 cm thickness.
Second. Experiment media
Mixture media that has been placed in pond, then started to flood the pond for 3 days, then discard the water.
Third. inoculated tubifex as seed.
more tubifex more faster population growth, sooner to be harvested.
Fourth. drainage water with a depth 3-5 cm. much better water used was wastewater pond catfish.
Fifth. feeding or fertilizing.
feed or fertilizer used was poultry manure, siftings, chopped cabbage and tofu waste. 2 times a week.
Ok. have a try and good luck. hopefully inspiring.
