So I have freeze dried blood worms, pellets (2 kinds) and flakes I rarely use. Id love an extra snack for my bettas in this case Brine Shrimp. I heard frozen may have germs that aren't killed off on the brine shrimp but freeze dried are better. I want frozen but is it too risky?

I haven’t heard about frozen foods carrying anything harmful to fish. I’ve feed brineshrimp and bloodworms to me bettas usually once a week and I haven’t had any problems. They’re also better than freeze dried as freeze dried doesn’t need have much protein. I really don’t think it’d be much a risk unless you got it from a sketchy source.

Great I will buy the frozen ones for my bettas. Thank you!

Frozen is great! My Bettas have always gotten it. My current Betta can have SBD issues so frozen brine and bloodworms are her staple foods.
