Very welcome. 

If you have lots of baby fish or want to feed VE intensively, a culture takes about 10 - 14  days for the population to boom. So set up ten to fourteen numbered cultures and rob a different one each day in orderly staggered rotation. 

I sandwich a stretched ladies stocking between 90mm pvc pipe and a pipe fitting then trim to 25mm pipe length  in a dropsaw to create a palm sized plate sieve for harvest. An adult worm is about 1.5mm long and the stocking is about 400 micron  (0.4mm) which is a good harvest size  for bigger fish babies. Don't forget to return the seived VE solution back to the culture as this has all the smaller worm sizes and eggs to grow for next harvest. You could also use a small net frame or coat hanger to make a stocking scoop net but it's best to stretch the stocking. 

 

Plenty of other ways to harvest if you google.
