Agreed.

If needed, im doing something similar with grindal worms - fish food - where I drilled a large hole and stuffed some filter wool in there... works well and provides some airflow.

I only drilled holes because the guide here on the forum said to provide ventilation.

Interesting. I don't have any holes in mine, but I do feed them every other day, so that is probably sufficient air flow. :P

I used to do that all the time, but not so much anymore :)
