this is a bit of a weird question but i was wondering if ant one has any input on feeding sand worms to your octos. if you are unfamilier with these they are a many legged tan to purpleish worm with huge pinchers. i was in the shore area this weekend but it was too late to get to any bait shops in the area but on the way home my friends and i passed a live bait vending machine. on a whim i bought some of these and offered um to my octo and he loved em but im not sure if there totaly safe as food. and if they are whats the best way to handle them without getting bit? right now i have them floating in a plastic container in my feeder tank as im afraid to relaese them. any other info, care, feeding tactics would also be appreciated.
