Preparing fish food out of worms - Idea

Preparing fish food out of worms
(In order to make new fish food you will first have to grow enough worms, collect them and than prepare them into fish-food to give them to the fish)

This food is good for ALL tropical fish - both freshwater and saltwater
This is an excellent food for conditioning fish for breeding or they can be used as a treat for your fish under non-conditioning times. They are full of natural proteins and nutrition and are also vitamin enhanced. These come in a cube format.
Minimum Crude Protein is approximately 62%
Ingredients: tubifex worms and vitamins

Her's an idea.
We grow Worms in MCO. We eat them. We also eat fish, but we need fish food to grow them bigger.
After some time the fish food is gone. How to make new fish food and why bother?
First of all - every food we grow in MCO has it's own properities. One grows fast - other slower.
Ones gives more food and the other doesn't. One needs to be supervised - the other doesn't.
So why exacty do bother about growing fish if there are easier foods to produce?
Becouse of the calories they give. 
Every food gives astronaut calories as they eat it.
Astronauts need about 3200 calories (on Mars propably more like 4000).
Worm food is greate to harvest, but it gives less calories than fish food.
So what I propose it to give player a possibility to chose - eat the worms or change them into fish food.
Worms can be prepared easily for fish to eat.
By feeding fish with worms we get fish food that give us more precious fish-meat with more calories.

It should be in the hands of the player to decide whether he should eat the worm food, or give them to the fish.
More calories refils hunger bar quicker.
Low calory food is grown faster.

Worms ---> Eat Worms (~500 kcal)

Worms ---> Preparing Worms ---> Fish food ---> Feed fish ---> Eat fish (~2000 kcal)

What do you think about that?

You can feed worms to the fish now. Been that way for a while, where you been?
