I went to the petshop and I saw blackworms, they were still alive and moving. I asked the shop owner if they were ok for turtles to feed, the guy said yes. I bought some and they seemed to try to eat them. When I came back the blackworms were hidding under the rocks. Are blackworms ok to for turtles? Thanks for your help.

They were probably curious about them at first, then decided they didn\'t like them, that is what happened to the first 8 feeder guppies, they ate a couple of guppies and then pretty much left the other ones alone.
Now I have 20 and they are still trying to catch one:D

I guess turtles are kinda like cats, very fussy about what they eat, and they like to play with their food (guppies):D
