Frozen brine shrimp have no nutritional value. Best to feed frog pellets and bloodworms, i also feed beefheart.

I haven't tried them, lol, i don't have them available to me where i live. I am sure, because they are live, that they will be fine, but do continue to feed bloodworms and frog pellets.

I went to Petco today and the only bloodworms I was able to find were freeze-dried. Is there any kind of food I can get for them at Petco, or would I have to find live food at a small store?

Petsmart should have frozen bloodworms in their freezer where the mice on ice are. They also have the frog and tadpole sinking pellets. They also sell a complete food packed in gell. Petco should have the same selection i believe.

petco should have bloodworms in a fridge. It took me like a year before I realized they carried frozen food. Do a good check of the whole store, as mine kept them kinda hidden in a corner by the tank with the live plants for sale. Another petco had them in the reptile section

Hopefully this is the last question, since it feels like I'm asking too many. Will I have to keep the bloodworms in a freezer/fridge so they can be edible? If I do, do I keep it in a fridge or freezer?

Frozen bloodworms must be kept frozen until use (much like frozen meat and such). It shouldn't stink up your freezer if that's what you're worried about :d

taking a break from fish-keeping.

I'm not worried about the stink. I'm worried about my family minding a bunch of worms inside the freezer.

LOL, tell them that if it was a snake there'd be rats in the freezer ;)
The box is small and inconspicuous, maybe they won't notice xD
