That's good to know about it loosing nutrients I never thought about that but it does make sense *face palm*. What about when you just wet the food before they eat it?
I know I was agreeing with you on parts but disagreeing on the soaking. ;)
Their food almost always gets wet before they eat it, but the longer it sits in the water, the more nutrients it'll lose. Many people also say that freeze dried foods lose almost all of their nutrients through the freeze drying process, which I think is a bit of an exaggeration. They do have nutrients and protein, just not a good enough variety.
I've personally seen a fish go months with freeze dried bloodworms ONLY. He didn't get sick or bloated once. In fact, he's still alive.
Would I recommend it as a staple? No. But people make them sound way worse than they are, and I think it scares some people away.
