Frozen Treats

I recently purchased some Hikari frozen bloodworms as treats, and to get a little extra protein to my male who got over a case of fin rot recently. I know to only use them a couple times a week as treats. Since I only have 3 fish I use nowhere near a full cube.
Anyone else have this problem? I have no problem tossing the rest since there are 12 cubes, it will last a while. I just wanted to know if there was a safe thawed range of a few days? Thanks for your help.

I use a sharp knife to cut the frozen cube in half or cut a quarter/small piece off, then I don't have to thaw more than I need.

I let it thaw for a bit before I feed it, when I use a unused chopstick to feed them to my male. I could control how many I feed him also, and I'm trying to teach him to jump for it :p.

If you don't have a chopstick, you can get any stick and make sure its not dangerous for them.

I take the frozen cube out, cut it into eighths and thaw one piece. The rest, I wrap up in a big sheet of saran wrap, with each piece separated by a layer of saran wrap. Put it back in the freezer, and then I have already portioned pieces ready for the next time.

Thanks for the advice. I'll try doing more pre-portioning and finding a better feeding tool. You could not pay me to touch bloodworms with my fingers. They are just too creepy looking, but my bettas love them.

I just use a plastic spoon. The bloodworms stick to the end of it, I dunk it in the water, the worm floats free- then my guy snaps it up.

They are gross, aren't they? And the smell, ugh. I hope our bettas realize how much we love them. ;)
