O.o I've never heard of that....I've only ever been told/heard that the process removes the nutrients and frozen is always better.

But your right, I need a new tank, I feel bad keeping one in that breeders thingie gotta find one with a heater if possible.
Lol, yes, Sasuke is definitely a Ninja....had to take him out of the divided tank because he kept mysteriously finding a way over. Hes not anywhere near the girls though

Hmm....check craigslist for your area? They sometimes have full setups for pretty cheap..

You know I trusted craigslist for about a year until it got popular and people used it to rob banks lol. The tank I have is a 2nd hand one anyway, so I should just buy one with a heater included.

And I applaud your Sasuke for finding his way out of his divider. Ninja fish are ninja.

I read somewhere on another site where someone did research and found that the freeze drying process actually keeps the vitamins in, like dr2b said. It should be rehydrated before feeding, though, to avoid digestive problems.

I put several bloodworms and water in a little plastic cup.. I wait about 5-10 minutes, then feed them to my fish.

Research is a good thing, its why I came to these fourms to ask questions and opinions from people. Your advice still was very helpful DragonFish^^.

So dramaqueen let me ask you, this Tetra Tropical Medley with freezedried brine shrimp, should I rehydrate that?

If it's freeze dried, I'd rehydrate it.
