Question how often can my guy have blood worms?

He LOVES he treats =] but i know to much can bung him all up, which is not good. How often can i give him his tasty treat? Normally i do it after i do a water change to say "sorry" for the stress haha... But that's every couple days. Is that to much or to little?

Are we talking freeze dried or frozen? I think you would be fine to give him 1 blood worm every couple of days but I wouldn't give him more than one.. especially if they are freeze dried.

yup he should be fine. If you want you can rehydrate the worm in a little bit of tank water so they are easier to digest.

I just take a little cup (like a small measuring cup or what ever you have) and fill it with some tank water then put the worm in for like a minute then pull it out and feed it to the fish. I have never had any problems with constipation feeding freeze dried foods this way.

Just to add in, I always pre-soak all of my dried foods (this includes all pellets, or at least most) in garlic juice, and I've also never had problems either.
