Only bloodworms...

So my new CT does not like the pellets I got him but gobbles up the freeze dried bloodworms. Until the good pellets arrive, and assuming he will eat those, can I just feed him only the bloodworms? If so, what's the general consensus regarding proper amounts? Currently I'm giving him 3 in the morning and 3 in the afternoon. If for some strange reason he doen't like the new pellets, can I just continue to feed him the bloodworms? Brine shrimp isn't available where I live...

Thanks in advance!

When are the pellets going to arrive? And feed only 2 bloodworms per day. They can get bloated really fast with those things. It's like chocolate to us.

I'm hoping Friday, if they made it to that particular APO shipment, otherwise, it will be mid to late next week.

Cool beans. Right now his stomach is barely round (it seems to be the perfect "just ate the right amount shape" based on a pic I saw in another thread/site). But I will keep monitoring.

Another stupid question, what is the harm with an all bloodworm diet? If I understand correctly, this is what they eat in the wild... Just want to be more informed. Thanks!

If Freeze-Dried, most of the nutrition went bye-bye. Live and Frozen are fine, though. They have the nutrition. The best food is all based on variety. Variety is the key for the best nutrition. :)

In my experience, to make my betta to eat e.g pellets, I kind of starve the betta for a day or two, after that they will be more likely to eat it. Not feeding it for 1 or 2 days shouldn't hurt the betta. I've had 5 to 6 (lost count) of these fish in my life now. :)
