WOW! I'm glad I read about bloodworms on here. I just picked them up yesterday and my bettas were skeptical at first but then they decided they love them! It's cute to watch them slurp up the longer ones like a piece of spaghetti.
Yes and you should not use frozen fish food unless you are prepared to have it in the freezer for a long time. Those little cubes of frozen bloodworms are enough to feed bettas for a month or more. The Freeze-dried are just a lot more easily dealt with. They are still limited to the small number whether they are frozen or freeze-dried so it is important to keep them from overeating.
hmmm. never had any problems with any of my fish with them. I'v actually read it's the freeze-dried that are bad lol. It seems there's a lot of contradicting views on things like this, don't know what to believe. :
If you buy a good brand, there should be no problem. The freeze-dried are fine, that is all I feed mine and they are foxy all the time but you have to control the amount of food you give either way. They still have to be kept from pigging out no matter what you feed them.
I used the frozen bloodworms once, but felt like they made the water cloudy. Maybe I fed them too much though? I will only give miy four bettas the freeze-dried blood worms, as I think the frozen ones are too messy.
