Actually the freeze dried process removes very little nutrition and they still keep the nutrition. They are nutritional. I use these for conditioning

Mo I don't mean to argue you but I will never recommend these as anything other than a treat. It's great it works for you but I still will not recommend it to people.
not as a normal food, not as conditioning food, and not as a staple part of their diet. If you feel I am wrong and you feel the need to prove it ask around, I'm not the only one that feels this way.

I'm sorry but I'm sticking by my Expereince, research and what the TOP breeders have told me. They feed freeze dried foods. It's great unless you don't re-hydrate it. Actually Karen Mac Auley, the GRAND CHAMPION of the IBC feeds Freeze Dried Tubifex worms. It is not considered a "staple" diet nor are the foods used for conditioning. Live foods available to the regular hobbyist usually aren't a good mix of staple foods as they are high in protein, yet lack other important properties of there diets. Blood worms, mosquito larvae, Brine Shrimp, etc. aren't considered a staple diet and I never said Freeze dried foods are. They are good for conditioning as they are high in protein and fatten the fish up. I feed my imports this food the day they arrive for about 5 days or so then switch them onto a homemade mix for my Betta Splendens

Mo, I'm not going to be swayed. I refuse to say they are an ok normal diet. Maybe the ones you get are better but in general just. I don't want to argue. This is my opinion and I'm ticking to it

Ok. Did you see the evidence proving how close they are in nutrition. These are the ones from Petco. See how close they are? Would you feed frozen bloodworms

Ok. No offense but I'm *trying not to be offensive or rude. Yet you are "yelling" I just wanted to point out a few things. I am not trying to correct your method and never said you should feed freeze dried foods. I am pointing out those things so newbies or people not very knowledgable about this subject know where to go in the right direction and aren't listening to misinformation. Freeze drieing foods only removes the moisture and very little nutrition they are a more convientent yet very similar way of feeding opposed to live or frozen foods. I rest my case and will no longer yet you "yell" at me or provide any misinformation for anybody not knowledgable in this subject. I'm only 12 so I will not pick any fight with you
