Blackworm culture (Lumbriculus variegatus) for use as a live fish food for the Hobbyi

I feed blackworms about once a week. Yesterday during water change day, I was cleaning out my sump and to my surprise, there was a whole mess of blackworms in it. It appears that either my fish aren't eating as many as I think they are, or some have escaped and are having a good time in my sump. I took most of them out, but I left a small clump to see if they'll do it again.
this guys a real pro.tubifex is the best food for growth and vigor.
Excellent guide. I did use the leftover kitchen vegetables especially potatoes skill peel to grow the worms and the worst part is having to deal with the smell.
I don't post much on message boards because the ones like this that are an established board have so much info that I spend more time reading the posts...However, as I posted in my intro...I have been keeping fish for 43 yrs. and I have applied all my experience to my Golfish so anyway, I feed my Goldfish as well as my Midas Red Wigglers, The Midas Daily and the Golds once a week. I have to admit that the Goldfish eat the worms as voraciously as the Midas but to keep it affordable, I have been dealing with this guy http://unclejimswormfarm.com/. Not only affordable but, Instructional video on farming worms and different types of worm farm set ups...I hope this is helpful...
I don't actually keep goldfish, but I was looking up info on the web about how to keep and culture tubifex worms. I'm not all that great at using aquarium stuff and knowing aquarium terms. I am hoping to culture tubifex worms for salamander larvae, since I don't really know what else to feed them (the local aquarium store stopped selling blackworms). When it comes to the instruction of "only keep them in cycled containers", I don't quite know what that means. I'm not the most experienced aquarium keeper. When it's summer here, I have two aquariums (each with an axolotl in it) on chillers to keep the water cool enough for them. Does "cycled" mean something like that?
