Having some problems with micro worms

Story is that my cultures until now always thrived...but lately I could see that they are now much weaker in development...?? I still use the same for the culture: oat meal , dry yeast everything not too liquid .
Do I have to get a different batch of worms from somewhere else to revive mine??
It would be fatal in the moment if all the culture fail...have a bunch of Bettas and Rams depending on it, so any advice is welcome :)

I'm guessing that you maintain the cultures properly: change out/rotate culture regularly, feed lightly and regularly, and remove cultures with mites. You might sterilize your containers and start over with starter cultures from cleaner parts of the old cultures. If that doesn't work, I guess your only other option is getting a new culture from somewhere else.
