So a couple of questions about frozen food after last night's debacle

I bought frozen brine shrimp and cut the cubes into fourths. Apparently that is still to much for my betta. How do you divide the cubes to get a sufficient amount to yours? Cuz piggy nommed the whole 1/4 of a cube and I looked at him before I went to bed and he looked like someone after Thanksgiving dinner- that is to say, he had a pudgy belly. Also, do you thaw the food before putting it in the tank? I didnt.. the tank itself thawed it quickly. Thanks for any help.

First put them in hot water to let them melt a bit and tweezers help.

I melt them in water and use a dropper to feed them.

That is great because frozen expands in water.

What do you do with excess brine shrimp then if you are thawing it all and not using it all?

Just shave a bit of the cube with a sharp knife and thaw it, and put the rest of the cube back in the freezer wrapped in a bit of foil or plastic wrap.
