Feeding bloodworms as a second meal??

Currently feeding 2 aqueon pellets 2 times a day , picked up some freeze dried bloodworms this weekend

would it be safe to switch two of the pellets for two worms a day

If not can someone be specific why

thanks

Freeze dried is best as a treat a few times a week rather then a daily meal.

Just feed 2-3 per feeding in place of a meal and it should be fine- some people say that the FD will bloat them- but that only happens when over feeding (and that applies to all types of food).
Some also say all the nutrients are taken out in the freeze dried process- which isn't totally untrue. Even though it may not have all the vitamins, it still has protein and fiber that is needed. Why it's best as a treat rather then a main meal daily- it doesn't have the full vitamins and nutrients that the processed food has, such as pellets.
You could also go by 2 pellets in the morning, a mid day snack of a bloodworm or two, and a dinner of 2 pellets.

If you decide to go the frozen bloodworms route, you could take out a meal of pellets and replace with frozen daily.
