So I got live bloodworms as a once a week treat for my bettas & for BB since he's only 4-5 weeks old. I have a couple questions. I've had people tell me to feed BB frozen brine shrimp, but a guy at my LFS (the one that takes great care of their fish & bettas are in tanks, not cups) suggested live bloodworms which is why partly why I decided to get them. It's ok to feed BB them right?
EDIT: I also have Hikari First Bites for BB too.
Also, my 2 girls, who are only about 3-4 months old were freaked out by bloodworms. They kept coming up to investigate, but as soon as the worms moved they darted off again. I'm squimish so I had a grasped a worm with tweezers & within about 30 seconds they got off the tweezer started sinking to the bottom & crawled into the gravel. It's a divided 10 gal & I'm buying a gravel vacuum tomorrow. Is it ok the 2 worms are in there or do I need to do something immediately? PetCo is open another 1hr 20min, so if I really needed to run down I could.
