Tetra Bloodworms

    Has anyone had their fish die of starvation while attempting to open the child-proof cap on a can of Tetra BloodWorms? I'm kidding, but would love it if Tetra redesigned the cap on this product. My fish love it (when I'm able to open it).

    It's been awhile since I fed my fish Tetra Bloodworms, but I know the struggle...lol

    I struggled with it for the first month but always managed to get it open. It finally quit working and I had to cut the top off so I could put the remaining contents in a small glass jar. I'll stick with bloodworms, but will most likely try a different brand next time. Just wanted to see if it was user error or a common problem.

    I highly recommend the Hikari flat-packs, although I've switched over to using live blackworms. They're just as easy to keep, easier to feed to my fish, and actually substantially cheaper to buy. I think it was something like $3.50/ounce at my LFS, and I've been using that ounce for over a month now. Just stick 'em in a tupperware container in the fridge, rinse them once a week, and feed them to your fish via a dropper/pipet.

    Good morning,

    Have you tried Ken's Freeze Dried Bloodworms?

     

    I order almost all of my foods from Ken's and I highly recommend his site. I haven't tried the Freeze Dried Bloodworms but I do use Ken's Freeze Dried Whole Earthworms and my fish love it!
    1/8th lb. should last you a long time. ($5.50) US

    I think I might have ordered the Tetra BloodWorms from Ken's, along with some NLS Thera A and Hikari Brine Shrimp. I'll give his brand a try.
