Frozen Bloodworms

Hi you guys,

Right now, I am feeding one of my Betta's the freeze dried bloodworms, the other don't care for them, so I don't bother giving it to other. but I herd they can make Betta's constipated and I don't want that to happened, so I'm looking at frozen bloodworms. But I'm confused, the box also says, they are from Red mosquito larvae, is this the one everyone is talking about for the Betta's? They are cubed, and comes from San Francisco Bay.

Yep that's them. "Bloodworm" is a misnomer, even though everyone calls the red mosquito larvae that. BTW, there's also white mosquito larvae. Bettas love those too.
When you feed the frozen stuff, thaw it out in a little cup with tank water, then dump out through a paper towel. Then you have just the "worms" and won't add unnecessary nutrients to your tank. (Well, this is just what I do, but found it helpful)

Thanks, just wanted to make sure I was getting the right one.

Yes, I know about the thawing process and how much to feed them, between 3 and 4 bloodworms, but I think I would play it save with just 2 or 3 depending on the size of the bloodworm. Plus my blue Betta won't take more than 3 anyways. My red Betta don't like the freeze dried one's so I'll try and see if he likes the real ones.

I did read on thawing them with tank water, and thought was cleaver, will be doing that process definitely. Thank you much.

NP. Hope your guy takes to them. They're definitely better than FD, as far as not having the bloat potential. I gotta get some for my new gal as well. Have fun ;)
