Frozen shrimp how to ?

Well, I purchased some frozen shrimp, and pulled out one cube. Put it on a paper plate, and used the edge of a plastic spoon, to scrape some off.

Put it in the aquarium. It was way too much! Let him try to eat some, which he did, and then did a water change.

How do you feed this? In small amounts and still not waste it?

AND, how the heck do you clean up that mess? Or get the little pieces of plants hanging out on the gravel?

I used the siphon tube, but seems it has a tiny hole that plugs easily. To remove the plug i loose the siphon and have to go again, which is impossible to start when there is only a couple inches water left?

I guess i can net it out, but there must be a better way.

Thanks so much, again hehe

I cut the cube in half, put half the cube in a little bowl (save the other half for later....between all four bettas and a ten gallon I only need half a cube...bloodworms and brine shrimp anyway), put a tiny bit of water into the small bowl to let the food unfreeze...then in a few minutes I take a little syringe (like the medicine ones) and the bettas eat the food STRAIGHT out of the syringe...like they suck it from the syringe...that way I NEVER get any extra food on the bottom of the tanks...feeding them one by one can take a little longer, but it's well worth it IMO because my tanks are all planted with sand so I don't want to dig for all the food or take anything out
