Default Feeding grindal worms to fries

Recently, I started to feed my 6 weeks old fries with grindal worms. Within a minute or two after they swallow the worms, I noticed that grindal worms came out from the anus of my fries. Those worms are still alive. Some fries even pull the worms out and ate them. This don't happen when i feed them with tubifex. The strange thing is after the worms being pulled out by their siblings, all the fries are still ok and continue to eat and swim as normal. Anyone experienced this too? Next time, I will try to take a pic and show all of you.

I have NEVER heard of that[:O]. It brings to mind that fish are, after all, fish.
The worms obviously haven't been digested fist time round. If you notice the growth rate diminishing, maybe grindal worms should be off the menu.

Whew! Talk about recycled food!!!

Now that could be a problem, what's the point of eating? heheh

I presume only some of the worms climb out again but most stay in the digestive tract.

This don't really makes sense coz i dont think the digestive system is so simple that the worms can come out in a few seconds..Within this week, I'll feed them again with grindal worm, take pics and let all of you see.

Agree, if it's Grindalsworm it's big for 6 weeks adult, and probably the stomach cannot melt this huge food[bh]
