Can I switch the two?
I'm vermiculturing as a source of food for my various tropical fish. So making it easier to harvest the worms, especially the babies, is of priority to me.
So that leaves me wondering, can I feed them by dropping food OVER the shredded newspaper instead of burying it UNDER the shredded newspaper? And then only keep a thin layer of NON shredded newspaper on top that I can more easily move aside? This would allow me to place a small sheet of glass over the food and lift it away with worms clinging to it. And I wouldn't have to dig through a pile of shredded newspaper to get to the worms.
