Thinking about starting a scud and blackworm culture

I'm currently in the planning stage of going into raising live foods. I've done a bit of reading online, but was wondering about other people's personal experience. I'm thinking of scuds and blackworms and I was wondering whether they can be kept in the same tank or do they have to have separate ones.

I was planning on keeping them in 1-2 gallon containers (probably a Sterilite or Rubbermaid container). Which is preferable, a taller but thinner container or shorter but wider container? Do I need a sponge filter for them? Or is an air stone good enough? For food, I'm thinking about feeding them fish flakes, sinking pellets, and filter squeezings.

If there's anything else that you guys can add, that would be great!

I would think that the lower and wider the culture container you use, the better oxygen exchange you'll get.
