I was just wondering, I was reading that live food is fun for your fish and then I thought "hey I should go scoop some mosquito larva out of a pond lol" but then I thought "wait will it hurt my fish?!" So I decided to ask lol

they're great for bettas, just make sure to rinse them really well, don't want any of the water they were in to get into your tank

curiousity, but bettas DO distinguish from good frozen bloodworms to the bad ones, right? theyr not going to just swallow it since its a bloodworm.. i just wanna be sure, since my bettas have never really cared and just gobbled them up. since the bloodworms come in cubes and they could never eat the whole cube at a time, the cube gets refrozen after feedings, and there would be dark/discolored bloodworms. of course i try to feed them the good looking ones, but just in case...........

refreezing can cause bacteria to grow, same reason you're not supposed to refreeze stuff like chicken and steaks. better to just break off a chunk and just thaw that

I've stuck a few cubes into a ziploc freezer bag and mashed them with a tenderizer, lol. you could try cutting them as well, but could be dangerous, and might result in frozen cubes flying across the room
