They are. I ended up getting a little thing of them myself. They definitely don't smell pleasent when you open it up though lol. They are nutritious in that there is nothing else added to them, only the baby shrimp. If they are a little big I break them up and give him the 2 halves.
So I have a question...does anyone else have yucky little white worms in their tanks? In my 10 gallon, last week when I was vacumming the gravel, I noticed some litte white stringy things floating around in the water and thought that maybe they came off the new silk plants I had put in there...well then I looked in the clear bucket I use for water changes and they were worms!! Does anyone else have them? I looked them up, they are harmless but apparently they can come as a little "surprise" in Tetra Brand flakes (not completely sure! Just what i read on other forums...) and mainly show up when you overfeed...but I don't overfeed..but I am very diligent in my tank cleanings (it's cleaner than my room haha) and the cories eat up anything that falls. Needless to say, they make my skin crawl!!! Should I just step up the water changes even more? (I do two 30% changes every week, mostly consisting of vacumming, and every other week I replace one of the 30% with a 50-75% change...that's what my dad taught me lol).If anyone has any idea as to how to get rid of them I'd appreciate it.
