I think freeze-dried is like chips. Crunchy. YAY! This is my 800th post!

The thing with freeze dried is that you should pre-soak them before feeding. Otherwise they will swell up in the fishes belly. My fish seem to prefer the frozen over FD.

Carter takes so long to grab it. I see the food soak up then he eats it. With Frozen dont you need to thaw it out? For Live you have to worr about disease.

I usually partially thaw it. I'll add the cubes to a cup of tank water and let it sit for just a couple minutes. The larger fish like the larger chunks while the smaller fish eat the single blood worms.

Yes, live worms I don't feed (unless I buy a picky fish who's not weened off live food yet) because of the concern about parasites. But also it's kind of a pain keeping the live worms in a Tupperware in your frig and having to change their water every day.

I have mini mason jars, i'll place a cube in there, let it thaw, use tweezers to pick up a small amount of worms and place them in the tank, my Bettas go nuts. I'll put the lid back on the jar and place it back in the freezer for the next feeding. It only takes about 4 minutes for them to thaw well enough for them to be fed to your fish.

I have both frozen and freezedried, i do use the freezedried more often but my boys to love the frozen much more, they usually zoom around the tank after and are much more happy lol.

I like frozen for my fish.. I can't find live foods in my fish stores. Hm... The frozen bloodworms actually have blood in them, so it's great for the fish. :D You can find frozen or FD foods in Petsmarts and fish stores. I've never seen frozen and Petco, though.
