Frozen Brine Shrimp

I have some frozen brine shrimp, but I only have two bettas. The brine shrimp comes in frozen cubes, but one cube could feed like twenty bettas! Is it okay to thaw the cube, but then freeze it again a couple of times?

Perfectly fine!

I'd recommend getting a pair of tweezers and picking out brine shrimp one by one, and feeding it to your betta that way, if you're not already doing it. I do it with all my bettas, and it's a joy to watch my sorority swarm over each other to try and get it. They've even started jumping! Good thing I have a hood. They've had one too many jumping accidents.

Your fish should be fine if you refreeze, as long as you don't leave it out for days and then refreeze lol. You could even try chipping off pieces with a knife if you are worried about it at all. I do that with my frozen bloodworms, I just chip off a little chunk for each fish.

No, do not thaw and refreeze foods. Fish foods should be treated with as much care as human foods...if not more, because you aren't cooking them. Thawing and re freezing gives bacteria an opportunity to grow which could harm your fish.

What I do is I put a cube in a zip lock bag, close it, crush it, and thaw out as many pieces as I need at the time. The rest goes back in the freezer for later use.
