Frozen or freeze dried bloodworms?

I want to buy some as a treat for my betta. Which one is better?

Frozen are better because they are not empty calories and they wiggle in the water. Fish appreciate having live food.

Ohh ok. thanks! How many should I feed? I know they come in cubes and I only have 1 betta. Could I just chop up the cube and use part of it?

Usually one or two worms a week per betta. They are primarily used as treats rather than a staple diet.

That's what i do. I take a teeny bit off and drop it in each tank. XD

I use both though, and both brine shrimps.
My bettas get lots of treats. lol.
No wonder they're spoiled brats.

Fate did say as a treat in the OP. ;3

Just driving the point home! Being clear is the best thing to be in a forum setting. That way you won't have drawn out posts of whether or not to do something.

And then, every once in a while, you'll come across a fish (like one of mine) who won't eat anything but frozen bloodworms. I don't have the heart to starve him into accepting pellets.

Brine shrimp and daphnia are great. they're a mild laxative too. Mine love them.
