    Default What happened to California Blackworm?

    Their website gets re-directed to Aquatic Foods, which is down. Anyone know what happened to them?

    I've been buying frozen beefheart from them for years. Any suggestions?

    I'm not sure. The site was working last week. Now I get a message that the connection is not safe. Maybe he was hacked?

    I know he mainly sells a lot of stuff off ebay and Amazon. I'm not sure if it includes his frozen line.

    It seems that my son tried to order black worms from them when Al was out but because of virus and licensing they were not allowed to sell in Washington State. He said the permits were too much. Yet an order could be place on Ebay.

    Thanks for the feedback. They're still in business, but the website is down. I was able to place an order by e-mailing Dan directly.

    I received email from CBW. Per: the water used to farm the Blackworms has dried up for the summer and will be back, hopefully, in the fall.

    My fish are not happy, so I am not happy.

    ***Does anyone know of any source for live red or black worms? We are desperate creatures!

    I've been able to purchase prepared frozen beefheart from Dan just last week. That part of the business is unaffected. I would strongly recommend staying away from live blackworms. Freeze dried is completely safe in comparison.

    I'm not Willie, but Dan is the owner of the business. He has turned over operations to his daughters.

    Yes, Aquatic foods. I think that what Willie bought was frozen.

    After months of no beef heart I tried the freeze dry but the fish turned up their collective noses at it so I broke it up into little pieces and mixed it into a blend of fdbw, TetraColor, and Bug Bites. Hide it, I did. Today I tried frozen out on the crew. Most of them ate it with vigor. I don't think they ate it all so I am going to vacuum the bottom before lights out. My irrepressible daughter Ellie Mae refers to the fare as "bee farts".
