Bloodworms

I was wondering if any of you guys feel that bloodworms give your fish swimbladder disorder. It seems like Rusty gets it right after eating bloodworms. He doesn't really float, he just has a hard time swimming down. But after awhile, he's ok.

Are they freeze-dried ones? You have to rehydrate them or they could expand in their stomachs after eating them...or so I am told. I'm not sure if I believe that or not, but I use frozen because I think it's healthier. I've never had a problem with them, but I do remember that I didn't give Edelweiss any for a while since she had SB problems when I got her and I thought they'd be too hard to digest.

Maybe they're just too rich for him *shrugs*

Yes, I do rehydrate them. I don't know whether to stop feeding them bloodworms or not. Maybe try a different brand. These are some brand no one ever heard of. lol

Yeah, I figured you already knew that about them. You could try a different brand. Maybe it's something that they use to preserve them that bothers him...like how some people can't handle certain foods.

Thats a good idea. I might try Hikari. The only thing is they have such big cans of the stuff. I'll have to get more bettas to help me get rid of all of it. lol

Well whatever it is I get from Walmart, not sure what brand, everyone loves them. And it's a small container only like 2 or 3 dollars. It's lasted me since May when I got Fishy, and it's not even half way emptied.
