How to feed frozen foods

Title says it all. I've tried but I can't seem to do it well. And are they supposed to sink?

This reminds me I have to thaw some brine shrimp for Sunday dinner!

I thaw it then feed them from the tip of a toothpick. Some use a q-tip. some use tweezers.

I feed my bloodworms with tweezers, just wait for the fish to see it and come up and release when they either grab it or start to look interested.

you could also try a q-tip but i've never tried it so I wouldnt know how

Okay thanks, I used a dropper (but accidentally thought there was only water left in it) and shot about 50 brine shrimp to the bottom....let's just say I just came back from a water change.

I dissolve a cube in a small amount of tank water & then spoon some in each tank. I probably over feed the frozen food when I feed them.

Is it supposed to sink? Or does it just sink on me?

It doesn't sink here cuz the fish devour it while it is still near the surface.

They will sink. Mine all chase them & the ones they miss are a snack for later.

Okay, one of mine doesn't like it and is lazy, so what's missed is a snail treat! But the other loves it!
