Bloodworms?!

Hi everybody! I just bought bloodworms for my betta Finn yesterday and I'm not sure how to incorporate it into his food schedule without making him a chubby fishy lol.
This is my schedule at the moment:
3 pellets in the morning and 3 at night.

I would love to hear how you guys incorporate the bloodworms into your fish's diet in order to give some ideas.

Thanks in advance.

When I feed mine bloodworms I feed them three if they're small and two if they're big. Are yours frozen or freeze-dried?? I only feed them bloodsworms on the weekend.

im using about 1-2 time a week.
As for your feeding times try to not feed the 1 whole day a week so they don't get bloated.

@ Jayy mine are freezedried, (i usually soak them for a good 3-5 mins before feeding them...just saying lol) Do you feed them everyday?

@Hermitpaws I do fast him once a week. lol. Do you feed them with the pellets or just by themselves? How many do you give when you do feed them?

Ah ok :) Thanks alot for your help hermitpaws ^_^.... Sounds like a good schedule.

I was thinking of 3 blood worms in the morning (depending on size of course) and 3 pellets at night twice a week. Feedback?

I would still love to hear more advice if anyone has any :)
