Anesthetizing lumbricids

Dear Annelidiologists,

Can anyone give me some tips on how to anesthetize lumbricid worms? I 
am trying to insert microelectrodes into a Lumbricus sp. (somewhat smaller 
than Lumbricus terrestris) and the worms definitely do not like it and tend to 
move so much that  measurements become difficult. Ideal would be a 
substance that would anesthesize the worm but not its gut microflora, but I'll 
try anything at this point.  

thank you, Nicole Dubilier
