    I was wondering about the frozen food they sell at petsmart and petco . They have it in the freezers and its frozin brine shirp with spirulina. It says on the front of the package that its free of unwanted parasites. Anyone trust this ?? does anyone on here use this food ? Is it really free of unwanted parasites like it says ? I was going to buy it but im a bit weary.

    I use them with no problem.

    You just got to keep the unused cubes frozen until you need to feed your fish.

    I also use the Hikari bloodworms - the package has the guaranteed analysis written on it.

    I would say its safe but with anything frozen, you have to make sure you use it all up in one shot and I would not recommend re-freezing

    Most frozen foods, once thawed, can be refrigerated in the water they were thawed in for up to 24 hours.

    They are selling name brand frozen foods so I have never been worried and my fish love the weekly treat.

    I use a wide variety of hikari frozen worms and shrimps (dwarf puffers and spoiler ADFs) no issue at all from the brand.

    I chop the cubes into pieces and have a died worm and shrimp bowl in little cups in the freezers. Reasonable portions ready to thaw as needed
