Ok, i've been feeding mine from my fingers.
Whatever left over my gouramis snake on.
So, using fingers to hold the worms to allow most to be eaten without allowing them to sink.
Some times my aro would bite my fingers instead, but after a while she would gently nibble.

So, is there a better way? May be using sine sort of object?

I use chopsticks to hold bloodworms above the water for my betta to catch, but then again I was the self-crowned Chopstick Princess in first grade.

my arowana has just started getting a taste for frozen bloodworms,i chuck a block in and it floats for while which is great because he never eats anything below his barbels

It may be a good idea to let the bloodworms thaw first, if they are frozen, it may damage the fish's stomach.

Oscar freak, sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but your arowana probably needs a larger tank, preferably one over 1000 Liters in volume. The arowana will grow huge, and at 4 feet long, your current tank won't be suitable.

I use a turkey baster to feed bloodworms to my peacock gudgeon alpha male that is always egg sitting in his tube. If i put them right at the entrance to the tube he'll come out and eat them.

Okay, sorry to bother you, Oscar Freak. Looks like your arowana has a caring owner that knows its requirements.

Sorry for the hijack Leeishom!

no worries elodea and thanx i'm doing my best now back to bloodworms;:barf,iv heard often how frozen blocks "may" be harmful to the fish eating them but i dont know how else to feed something so small to something with such a big mouth.and can 1 or 2 blocks a week really be dangerous?
