Sinking Bloodworms?

I just got some freeze dried bloodworms as a treat for my fish. Unfortunately they float and my Danios ate them all before any sank down to where the Cardinal Tetras usually feed. Only one ventured to the top to try. Any ideas on sinking the bloodworms?

you can get one of those little worm feeder thing which should sink so all your fish can get a bite to eat.

I use frozen, they are plump and sink as soon as they are thawed. The fish at the top get them, some sink but never get all the way to the bottom because they get gobbled up on the way!

you usually can't rely on gravity to get those meaty little candies down to the bottom, fish are addicted to the stuff.

You could suck some up into a turkey baster and then use it to shoot them gently down to the lower part of the tank.

Cobetta has a really good idea there.

We use a syringe with a piece of airline tubing attached to feed our baby fish...but it may work for the blood worm too.
