HI all! I have a 15 gal tank with Mollies and a Betta, and a 25(ish) gallon with Zebra Danios. I fed them all some live bloodworms last week, and I think it is safe to say they enjoyed them! lol.

Last time I went to my LFS they had live bloodworms, and live daphnia, which I don't really know anything about. Would these be good also to feed occasionally to all my fish?

There are some fry in the tank with the mollies, and they do readily feed now on whatever I put in the tank, but the bloodworms were bigger than them, so they didn't really get a look in! lol

Thanks

Live daphnia is also an excellent treat food. It is high in carotenes, enhances color, and can be used as a laxative.

Thanks for the info That's great. Should I alternate with bloodworms, maybe bloodworms one week and daphnia the next?

Yep. Keep your fish on a varied diet, it's much healthier that way.
