Is it safe to run tap water over it? Considering your bettas will be eating it, wouldn't chlorine and other chemicals be an issue?

I don't know. I would thaw it in dechlorinated water in a cup.

Actually, when I first got Amir, he wouldn't even bother with the FDB. He'd on eat pellets. But after a week or straight pellets. I would give him maybe 3 pellets, and FDB. Eventually he learned that they were food and eat one. Ever since then he's loved him.

Could just be possible that where your betta came from, the breeder didn't use FDB or anything of the like, so your betta doesn't even know what it is yet.

I just cut off a portion of the cube and thaw it for 14 seconds or so in the microwave, then feed with tweezers. It isn't messy because you can feed them one or two worms at a time.

Either or. Any chemicals in the water are going to dissipate as soon as it goes in the tank, so I have never worried about it.
